Mediocre: The Dangerous Legacy of White Male America

Hardcover – December 1, 2020
by Ijeoma Oluo (Author)
4.4 out of 5 stars 6 ratings
#1 New Release in Women in History

Editorial Reviews
“Nuanced, uncomfortable, and illuminating.”

―Washington Post

“Ijeoma Oluo’s sharp yet accessible writing about the American racial landscape made her 2018 book, So You Want to Talk About Race, an invaluable resource for anyone looking to understand and dismantle racist structures. Her new book, Mediocre, builds on this exemplary work, homing in on the role of white patriarchy in creating and upholding a system built to disenfranchise anyone who isn’t a white male.”―TIME

“[Oluo has written] a bold, incisive book on heavy topics with a call to action for a more equitable future that doesn’t center White men.”

―Kirkus

“Erudite yet accessible, grounded in careful research as well as Oluo’s personal experiences of racism and misogyny, this is an essential reckoning.”

―Publishers Weekly

“Ijeoma’s revelatory and visionary new book confronts disturbing hidden histories that vibrate throughout our institutions and communities today. The connections and insights in Mediocre make it an essential read.”―Austin Channing Brown, New York Times bestselling author of I’m Still Here

“There is no one more adept at parsing the toxic effects of white male privilege and systemic oppression than the immensely talented Ijeoma Oluo. Her brilliant book is a master class in understanding how systems of domination working relentlessly in the service of white male patriarchy not only harm all women and people of color, but ultimately hinder white men themselves from reaching greatness.”
―Michael Eric Dyson, New York Times bestselling author of Long Time Coming

“Oluo is one of our great voices and Mediocre not only educates us, but it inspires us all to act and change the world for the better. But first, I need to read this book again. It’s just that damn good.”―Phoebe Robinson, New York Times bestselling author of You Can’t Touch My Hair

“Mediocre offers profound truth in service of liberation. It cuts to the heart of white male supremacy, a system that is life-destroying for people of color and even for white men ourselves.”―Matt McGorry, Actor, How To Get Away With Murder and Orange is the New Black, Activist, and Co-Founder of Inspire Justice

“In her illuminating new book, Ijeoma Oluo unpacks how ‘mediocrity’ is a privilege created and perpetuated by our obsession with white male superiority. Oluo deftly balances the cultural history of white western male myth-making with contemporary cultural criticism of the aggrieved white American man. It is a deft and thought-provoking book that contextualizes public discourse on race, class, and gender in America.”
―Tressie Mcmillan Cottom, author of the National Book Award Finalist Thick

“Once again, Ijeoma Oluo uses her elegant voice to speak directly to the root issues at the core of the United States’ seeming inability to reconcile who we have been with who we had hoped to be. This book goes beyond how we got here, and digs into where we are, what we’re going to do about it, and what’s at stake if the people with the most power refuse to do better.”
―Ashley C. Ford, writer

About the Author
Ijeoma Oluo is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller So You Want to Talk About Race. Her work on race has been featured in the New York Times and the Washington Post. She has twice been named to the Root 100, and she received the 2018 Feminist Humanist Award from the American Humanist Association. She lives in Seattle, Washington.

Mediocre: The Dangerous Legacy of White Male America by Ijeoma Oluo is a timely and magisterial biography of America’s Confident-but-Mediocre-White-Man-in-Chief, Joe Biden.

    Yes, thanks to the fact that he was born rich he approaches solid mediocre. You’re forgetting how many meth-heads, slacker baristas, old punks, hillbillies, and shut-ins there are.

  3. Oluo’s mother is a white Kansan, while her father was a Nigerian immigrant who abandoned the family when she was two years old. Her hatred of white men seems like a case of transference. Also, her ex-husband Chad R. Jacobson is white.

  7. I made through the first few paragraphs of the Amazon sample. The author was at a writing retreat in an undisclosed mountain setting. She had writer’s block and when she and the other women ate dinner together each night, their conversations would inevitably devolve into them sitting around complaining about men. It gives the impression she wrote a book length version of a NY Times column to overcome the writer’s block.

    She picks out certain men and complains about them, the sample only gets us through a distant relative who annoys her on social media, Buffalo Bill Cody and Cliven Bundy. Clearly a representative sample of U.S. history. If white men are mediocre, Ijeoma Oluo and her fellow feminist writers have never reached anything even approaching mediocre in their lives. Someone should ask her how much of the infrastructure she and her fellow writers used on their retreat they would be capable of maintaining without the help of white men.

    Good point!
    Of course there are also plenty of black tradesmen. I would prefer a black handyman to a Jewish one. More practical. I often wonder why more women don't become trained in "the trades."

    A few women have become master electricians---there's a profession that I would say requires at least as much knowledge, skill, and experience as a dentist. No kidding. Have you had your house rewired lately??

    I wonder whether any writing retreats have thought to invite a woman electrician? Maybe learning how to rewire the house would provide some new material and budge the writer's block

    It’s about time someone came along to release white men themselves from their self-imposed shackles, and permitted them the freedom to actually accomplish something for once. I mean, what have the Romans ever done for us??

  25. To me a core requirement for a post-Trump nationalist leader is someone who is willing to say the s-word: Separation.

    They must be able to coherently speak about the core issue: No people–their nation, their territory, their work effort, their stuff–belong to some other group.

    American Jews managed to successfully propagate this ideology of minoritarianism–“minority supremacy”–which is logically ridiculous and morally vile.

    You–whitey!–don’t own your nation, your neighborhood, your school, your business, your stuff, your own labor! You must share all those things. Heck the whole purpose of society, of the state is to insure that minorities are allowed to loot you. Parasite lib.

    I have absolutely zero issue–zero–with bitchy Miss Oluo’s desire not to be bossed around by white guys, not to live in white society under white/white guy norms. That’s fine. (I have a very symmetric feeling myself.)

    But neither she, nor Jews, blacks, muzzies, mexicans, immigrants of any stripe, whiny feminists, have any claim to make us white gentile guys live according to their desires nor any claim on our stuff. F’ off! Our stuff, our labor, our capability, our ability to build nice stuff–neighborhoods and nations–belong only to us.

    White gentiles built America. If a bunch of minorities (and/or whiny feminists) are unhappy with the way white guys operate–our culture, norms, traditions, values–peachy!

    We just go our separate ways–peacefully, respectfully. But trust me–we are entitled to go our way and live our lives as we wish–according to our white-man norms and values and working for ourselves and our children. We are not your slaves.

    Whites will be the minority by 2040 , but there will be little need for death camps as the white fertility stays at record lows and deaths of despair continue to increase. over the last decade 500,000 whites have died from drugs and 400,000 have committed suicide. Little need for camps when so many whites are killing themselves.

    Over the last 5 years there have been more white deaths than births in America. This trend is accelerating. Census Bureau statistics show an absolute decline in the nation’s white population—accelerating a phenomenon that was not projected to occur until the next decade. https://www.brookings.edu/blog/the-avenue/2018/06/21/us-white-population-declines-and-generation-z-plus-is-minority-white-census-shows/

    Since the peak in 1985 the number of white people has declined by 20% in the most important age demographic, those between the ages of 20-40. the drop in white fertility is increasing and more white mothers are having non-white children. Today whites are a minority in the under 20 population. Amnesty will come next year, resulting in millions more migrants flooding our borders.

    Whites aged 20-40 years-old
    1980– 58 million
    2000- 56 million
    2020- 47 million

    , @Mr. Blank
    @Mr. Blank

    My point here is that the loony left is still in the bargaining phase. I don’t think any big lefties today actually WANT death camps for white males — they are telling themselves, “well, all this near-genocidal language is just creative hyperbole. Or it’s a sociological metaphor for extinguishing ‘whiteness’ as a concept. Or something like that. Point is, we don’t actually *want* to exterminate white men.”

    My experience, though, has been that the subtle, unspoken wisdom of one generation rarely gets passed on to the next. Things that the elders believe are so obvious as to need no explanation often go right over the heads of the younger guys.

    So yeah: I really think that a generation from now, people like me are gonna be loaded en masse onto cattle cars, or their cyberpunk equivalent. It’s not here yet, but the logic required to get there seems burned into the system, at least as I understand it...

    The idea that white Christian civilization is hated more for its virtues than its sins doesn’t occur to us, because it’s not a nice idea. Western man towers over the rest of the world in ways so large as to be almost inexpressible. It’s Western exploration, science, and conquest that have revealed the world to itself. Other races feel like subjects of western power long after colonialism, imperialism and slavery have disappeared. The charge of racism puzzles whites who feel not hostility, but only baffled good will, because they don’t grasp what it really means: humiliation. The white man presents an image of superiority even when he isn’t conscious of it.

    This one is more succinct:

  46. A few years ago, I was pretty quiet about my attitudes towards race. Nowadays, I openly tell people that I’m racist. Not that I walk around and tell it to people in an unsolicited way, but if the subject comes up (usually with other white people), I pretty much just say I’m racist and that’s that. If they want to know more I’m happy to tell them, but usually it kind of shocks them or they think I’m trolling. Whatever. The open attack on white males has had the opposite of the intended effect on a lot of us I’m afraid. The other benefit is that it’s easier to identify “allies” via the books that they promote. Oh, you just read White Fragility and thought it was great? Good to know…good to know.

    I made through the first few paragraphs of the Amazon sample. The author was at a writing retreat in an undisclosed mountain setting. She had writer's block and when she and the other women ate dinner together each night, their conversations would inevitably devolve into them sitting around complaining about men. It gives the impression she wrote a book length version of a NY Times column to overcome the writer's block.

    She picks out certain men and complains about them, the sample only gets us through a distant relative who annoys her on social media, Buffalo Bill Cody and Cliven Bundy. Clearly a representative sample of U.S. history. If white men are mediocre, Ijeoma Oluo and her fellow feminist writers have never reached anything even approaching mediocre in their lives. Someone should ask her how much of the infrastructure she and her fellow writers used on their retreat they would be capable of maintaining without the help of white men.

    To me a core requirement for a post-Trump nationalist leader is someone who is willing to say the s-word: Separation.

    They must be able to coherently speak about the core issue: No people--their nation, their territory, their work effort, their stuff--belong to some other group.

    American Jews managed to successfully propagate this ideology of minoritarianism--"minority supremacy"--which is logically ridiculous and morally vile.

    You--whitey!--don't own your nation, your neighborhood, your school, your business, your stuff, your own labor! You must share all those things. Heck the whole purpose of society, of the state is to insure that minorities are allowed to loot you. Parasite lib.


    I have absolutely zero issue--zero--with bitchy Miss Oluo's desire not to be bossed around by white guys, not to live in white society under white/white guy norms. That's fine. (I have a very symmetric feeling myself.)

    But neither she, nor Jews, blacks, muzzies, mexicans, immigrants of any stripe, whiny feminists, have any claim to make us white gentile guys live according to their desires nor any claim on our stuff. F' off! Our stuff, our labor, our capability, our ability to build nice stuff--neighborhoods and nations--belong only to us.

    White gentiles built America. If a bunch of minorities (and/or whiny feminists) are unhappy with the way white guys operate--our culture, norms, traditions, values--peachy!

    We just go our separate ways--peacefully, respectfully. But trust me--we are entitled to go our way and live our lives as we wish--according to our white-man norms and values and working for ourselves and our children. We are not your slaves.

    Self-determination--a primary aspect of freedom--and it's taken for granted that everyone in our society except WCM [White Christian Men] should enjoy it.

    Yes, as I've been pointing out for a while, the real bias in media is what they don't report--what is omitted. The Dem strategy, which includes media compliance, is to stall, delay, and run out the clock past the point where it can matter.

    They've been perfecting the technique since Bill Clinton's scandals a generation ago. New media stories are generated every day, so yesterday's scandal becomes "old news"--and time to "move on." A Dem dweeb even turned "move on" into a money-maker partisan organization.

    Whites will be the minority by 2040 , but there will be little need for death camps as the white fertility stays at record lows and deaths of despair continue to increase. over the last decade 500,000 whites have died from drugs and 400,000 have committed suicide. Little need for camps when so many whites are killing themselves.

    Over the last 5 years there have been more white deaths than births in America. This trend is accelerating. Census Bureau statistics show an absolute decline in the nation’s white population—accelerating a phenomenon that was not projected to occur until the next decade. https://www.brookings.edu/blog/the-avenue/2018/06/21/us-white-population-declines-and-generation-z-plus-is-minority-white-census-shows/

    Since the peak in 1985 the number of white people has declined by 20% in the most important age demographic, those between the ages of 20-40. the drop in white fertility is increasing and more white mothers are having non-white children. Today whites are a minority in the under 20 population. Amnesty will come next year, resulting in millions more migrants flooding our borders.

    Whites aged 20-40 years-old
    1980– 58 million
    2000- 56 million
    2020- 47 million

    What are his strengths besides making businesses go bankrupt, create cons like his Trump University, and purchase foreign models as wives? I will give something to Trump, though: his skills at lying, deceiving and spinning the truth in his favor are truly remarkable. He is a megalomaniacal, egocentric, narcissistic, pathologically lying psychopath. But I guess he might build your wall in his second term, the wall he failed to built in his first term, so you are wlling to forgive his many, many and very, very serious flaws in exchange for that. How convenient. Even worse coming from a conservative. Don't you conservatives pay so much lip service to probity and being earnest? How does Trump fit the conservative moral ideal?

    This is actually a key point to understanding the vast majority of people. They lack intellect and experience and have no capacity for nuance, and this dictates their judgments of others. In finance they think in terms of already having become very rich, not in terms of saving money and investing. Almost every rap video is like that. In solving problems they think of swich-flipping total rectification and not following a troubleshooting list or tracing origins or gradual inprovement. This actually explains the otherwise incoherent fantasyland babble of the Democrats. Their audience can't see the obvious problems or the blithe arrogance of sweeping Democrat promises.

    Another OT Election Fraud Update:

    Video surveillance footage from The State Farm Arena Counting Center in Atlanta shows that: (a) at 10:00 p.m. on election night, a poll worker clears out the press and poll watchers by telling them the counting was over for the night; (b) At 11:00 p.m. after the observers were gone four workers who stayed behind started pulling suitcases of ballots out from under a table where they were concealed under a long black tablecloth; (c) The table had been put in the room by the same woman who cleared the room and who also stayed behind; (d) That woman and three other workers proceeded to scan these suitcase-ballots for the next two hours from around 11:00 p,m to 1:00 a.m.; (e) Based on the capacity and number of the machines about 18,000 ballots could have been scanned during this two-hour window.

    Interestingly, “A vote update in Georgia listed at 1:34AM Eastern Time on November 4th, 2020, which shows 136,155 votes for Joe Biden and 29,115 votes for Donald Trump” was identified in a prior mathematical analysis as the 4th most statistically improbable vote ratio out of all 8,954 vote updates reported during the course of the entire election. (The 1st and 2nd most implausible ratios were the vote dumps at almost the same time in Michigan and Wisconsin.)

    I read one of the Stranger articles — the one about my father is an African immigrant and my mother was a white girl. It was very interesting. Thank you and the person above who also linked to it.

    It is interesting for a woman who has a white American mother as well as Nigerian half brothers and sisters to make career out of complaining about white Americans.

    I wonder what her Nigerian relatives think about her American privilege? I think that’s far more intense than white privilege. I wonder if she’s ever even visited Nigeria or thought of living there? I also wonder why her father went back.

    Presumably your post is meant to be ironic; at any rate this pronouncement of Mr. Dad’s bears emphasis:

    we are entitled to go our way and live our lives as we wish–according to our white-man norms and values and working for ourselves and our children.

    Self-determination–a primary aspect of freedom–and it’s taken for granted that everyone in our society except WCM [White Christian Men] should enjoy it.

    But these same words uttered by a WCM are revolutionary now. They are grounds for expulsion from “polite society” –itself a ludicrous phrase now. Surely this speaks volumes about our situation today.

    Well, I'm an optimist, so I think the death camps for white males are still about a generation away. But only a fool doesn't think they're coming, at this point.

    Replies: @JimB, @Travis, @Mr. Blank

    My point here is that the loony left is still in the bargaining phase. I don’t think any big lefties today actually WANT death camps for white males — they are telling themselves, “well, all this near-genocidal language is just creative hyperbole. Or it’s a sociological metaphor for extinguishing ‘whiteness’ as a concept. Or something like that. Point is, we don’t actually *want* to exterminate white men.”

    My experience, though, has been that the subtle, unspoken wisdom of one generation rarely gets passed on to the next. Things that the elders believe are so obvious as to need no explanation often go right over the heads of the younger guys.

    So yeah: I really think that a generation from now, people like me are gonna be loaded en masse onto cattle cars, or their cyberpunk equivalent. It’s not here yet, but the logic required to get there seems burned into the system, at least as I understand it…

    Yes, as I’ve been pointing out for a while, the real bias in media is what they don’t report–what is omitted. The Dem strategy, which includes media compliance, is to stall, delay, and run out the clock past the point where it can matter.

    They’ve been perfecting the technique since Bill Clinton’s scandals a generation ago. New media stories are generated every day, so yesterday’s scandal becomes “old news”–and time to “move on.” A Dem dweeb even turned “move on” into a money-maker partisan organization.

    That is patently false. Politicians routinely state they adhere to ethical standards and embrace morality when making decisions. We as voters place trust in elected officials to follow the rule of law. Trump’s supporters routinely state he embraces the Constitution. His actions, as well as members of his cabinet and inner circle, have shown otherwise.

    “And finding unfulfilled promises by a politician to be exceptional or serious is both naïve and historically ignorant.”

Other races feel like subjects of western power long after colonialism, imperialism and slavery have disappeared.

    Except we won’t all be the same color. We will end up with a continuum of shades with everyone looking down on anyone darker and resenting anyone lighter. Everyone is going to hate everyone. It’s going to be great!

    Why do we permit people who hate us, or who will have children who grow up to hate us, to come to our country.

    There is no common ground between people like her and the rest of us, nor can there be any peace between us. People like her despise us, despise our ancestors and the country they built. They seek to turn our own people against us. They are our enemies, simply put. They can go to Hell.

  157. Is it just me or has iSteve been weekly putting up blog items about books written by crazy black people (Black!) blaming white people for all of mankind’s problems? Oh, “humankind” sorry…

    Where do these tomes come from? Surely library budgets aren’t that large. My hunch is that the NYT has a secret book publishing subsidiary with some vague name (e.g. Profound Books) that buys up this nutty stuff for peanuts. Gets major shareholder Carlos Slim to get them printed cheaply in Mexico. Authors get a small fee plus commission. But hey, they’re now “published authors!”

    Then after publication (one of these each month) they get their in-house book reviewers to write gushy commentary about how they are all “must reads” for their guilty white (and heavily NYC Jewish) readership. So they aren’t really books for the public. More like literary cat-o-nine-tails for People Much Smarter Than You. If you are actually guilty enough to read them.

    Reviewers may or may not actually read these, but skim enough to write the mush. Sort of like religious literature. They all sing the same tune, just slightly different verses.

    We read iSteve’s excerpts, so the comments flow. But this is mere bull baiting. We aren’t supposed to even know about these books. They aren’t for us. This way, the newspaper holding company skims the take off the suckers and keeps the unhappy black female would-be authors from applying for actual jobs at the Times. The book reading/reviewing is done in punishment cubicles for the slackers. The White Guilt salt mines should have enough reserves for a few more years.

    It doesn't matter if the publishers lose money on each title, they'll surely make it up on volume.

    I made through the first few paragraphs of the Amazon sample. The author was at a writing retreat in an undisclosed mountain setting. She had writer's block and when she and the other women ate dinner together each night, their conversations would inevitably devolve into them sitting around complaining about men. It gives the impression she wrote a book length version of a NY Times column to overcome the writer's block.

    She picks out certain men and complains about them, the sample only gets us through a distant relative who annoys her on social media, Buffalo Bill Cody and Cliven Bundy. Clearly a representative sample of U.S. history. If white men are mediocre, Ijeoma Oluo and her fellow feminist writers have never reached anything even approaching mediocre in their lives. Someone should ask her how much of the infrastructure she and her fellow writers used on their retreat they would be capable of maintaining without the help of white men.

    Of course there are also plenty of black tradesmen. I would prefer a black handyman to a Jewish one. More practical. I often wonder why more women don’t become trained in “the trades.”

    A few women have become master electricians—there’s a profession that I would say requires at least as much knowledge, skill, and experience as a dentist. No kidding. Have you had your house rewired lately??

    I wonder whether any writing retreats have thought to invite a woman electrician? Maybe learning how to rewire the house would provide some new material and budge the writer’s block

    Looking for a 'moral ideal' in a politician, is a category error. And finding unfulfilled promises by a politician to be exceptional or serious is both naïve and historically ignorant.

    “Looking for a ‘moral ideal’ in a politician, is a category error.”

    That is patently false. Politicians routinely state they adhere to ethical standards and embrace morality when making decisions. We as voters place trust in elected officials to follow the rule of law. Trump’s supporters routinely state he embraces the Constitution. His actions, as well as members of his cabinet and inner circle, have shown otherwise.

    “And finding unfulfilled promises by a politician to be exceptional or serious is both naïve and historically ignorant.”

    Exceptional, no. Serious, yes. The fact of the matter is Trump has sullied the Oval Office with his historic antics compared to other presidents.
