It is easy to recognize and condemn overt acts of racism, but subtle and persistent racism is just as damaging. In Such a Fun Age, the author shows the variety of ways people can experience and display racist behavior. Having read the book twice, Avery shares her main takeaways. The book demonstrates how intent doesn't matter as much as impact, how people will accept what reinforces their narrative and reject what doesn't, and how all people are flawed (even when they don't think they are).
