    One thought on “How to Get Stupid White Men Out of Office: The Anti-Politics, Un-Boring Guide to Power”

    1. This book was awesome, I wish I would have read it sooner, but better late than never. I was perplexed at times to see some of the stories that people shared that I was like that can't be right, really here in the US that happened? Oh yes it did. It was so hopeful to see the barriers that certain people went through & how they managed to not only survive but come out on top. These stories that were shared were from all over the US & it shows how power to the people really does make a dif [...]

    2. An inspiring book about what young people (14-35) can do in terms of political organizing, when they get angry or passionate enough about a particular issue. I'm close to 50, and this has fired me up (even more than previously) to get involved in grass-roots organizing for all levels of elections. I'm also seriously considering running for our local school board within the next 5-7 years.

    3. This was, meh, okay. It includes a lot of student stories about organizing their college communities and so on to get more minority recognition. They were fine as far as they went, but didn't give me the sense that they were coming up with ideas that would apply to the outside world. They don't seem to be engaging in what we really need -- governmental change OUTSIDE of college campuses.

    4. This book inspires the young, sexy, HipHop lovin, womyn of color embodying, transformative resisting, political progressive in me. Reading this book makes me feel like I have power to create social change through the realm of electoral politics-- Booya!

    5. This is probably the most under-rated and useful book I've ever worked on. I hope more people read it -20 real life stories of young progressives winning and swinging elections. Complete with suspense and lessons learned.

    6. This book was published in 2004 with the intent of voting Dubya out of office. I decided it was worth buying now in an effort to keep Trump to one term. They aren't saying all white men are stupid, nor are they saying that all stupid white men are whiteor men. They're merely saying that things need to change to reflect the times. They do this by educating and motivating young people (many of color) and other marginalized groups to volunteer and, most importantly, to get out there and vote. It's [...]
