Esteemed Georgetown Sociology professor Michael Eric Dyson has taken the realms of philosophy and American culture by storm with his latest book Tear We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America. In this particular book, Dyson hashes out some harsh truths about white culture in 21st century America and how minorities a viewed in the eyes of “Tribal  Whiteness,” which means that there seems to be a sense of entitlement or some kind of extended privilege, Dyson states in his book, however, that most whites in American society are oblivious of the fact that they subscribe or benefit from white privilege. Dyson reiterates this theory by pointing out the fact that although there are many whites living in poverty, some of them still feel like they have the upper hand on black or any other minority group simply due to the pigmentation of their skin.

When preparing to write this review, however, I feared that some of our reader might view this book as an angry rant on white America by an African American intellectual, but that is not the case. What Dyson tries to convey his new book is a clear and concise understanding of the plight that African Americans have faced for centuries due to the oblivious nature of white privilege. The genius of this book, however is the soft tone in which the book is written. In other words, it is neither condescending or grandiose; rather it speaks to its audience in kind and loving tone, often referring to then as beloved or brothers and sisters. All and all, Dyson’s book wants us all to see that we are equal in the eyes of GOD.
