My choice for book of the year isn't going to be controversial. The obvious winner is Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates.
This book is a great rebuttal to Jews who believe we hold a monopoly on suffering and show zero sympathy to black people who currently endure struggles that are categorically similar to the struggles we once endured in Europe. (No, I don't mean the Holocaust. Jewish European history didn't start in the 1930s)

Some of the similarities include the inability to get justice from the courts, and the way local civil authorities act as enemies rather than protectors. Also, while we tend to focus on the intellectual superstars we produced in Europe, shtelt Jews were very much an underclass, with all that entails. Hitler didn't have to work very hard to convince white Europeans that we were a sort of subhuman. The idea was already firmly rooted in the European consciousness. I don't think its much of a stretch to say that black - especially third and fourth generation American blacks - are likewise viewed by many as something of a inferior species.
