The latter didn't necessarily change my life, but it's helped me put a lot of racism and colonialism shit into perspective.
@maloki what kind of freaked me out The Souls of Black Folk was how much *nothing* has changed. Like, DuBois was calling out the same racist arguements and attacks then, and open racists and 'color-blind' white folks are still making today.
It really gave me a feel for the way it all connects, the patterns of racism and how they play out differently, but never really change.
