UW-Green Bay Director of MESA discusses book sales on the topic of anti-racism and discrimination on the rise | WBAY

Book sales on topics such as discrimination and anti-racism are on the rise.

“I think what’s happening now is a lot of people are saying ‘you know what, I don’t think that’s enough’, but because they don’t know the how, and I think that’s where the book reading has been increasing, is where they’re saying ‘you know I don’t think it’s enough that I’m not racist,” said Mai Lo Lee.

Mai Lo Lee said by reading you can slow down from the mass of information you see online, and possibly better contribute to the cause.

“Especially with the education of knowing how powerful it is when racism is corrected or ended by a white person and I always say this is where your voice is much more powerful when you’re correcting somebody within your own community or someone who has affinity with you,” said Mai Lo Lee.
