Well, That Escalated Quickly: Memoirs and Mistakes of an Accidental Activist

In this sharp, funny, and incredibly timely collection of personal essays, veteran video blogger and star of MTV's Decoded Franchesca Ramsey explores race, identity, online activism, and the downfall of real communication in the age of social media rants, trolls, and call-out wars. Franchesca Ramsey didn't set out to be an activist. Or a comedian. Or a commentator on identity, race, and culture, really. But then her YouTube video "What White Girls Say. . . to Black Girls" went viral. Twelve million views viral. Faced with an avalanche of media requests, fan letters, and hate mail, she had two choices: Jump in and make her voice heard or step back and let others frame the conversation. After a crash course in social justice and more than a few foot-in-mouth moments, she realized she had a unique talent and passion for breaking down injustice in America in ways that could make people listen and engage.In her first book, Ramsey uses her own experiences as an accidental activist to explore the many ways we communicate with each other--from the highs of bridging gaps and making connections to the many pitfalls that accompany talking about race, power, sexuality, and gender in an unpredictable public space...the internet. WELL, THAT ESCALATED QUICKLY includes Ramsey's advice on dealing with internet trolls and low-key racists, confessions about being a former online hater herself, and her personal hits and misses in activist debates with everyone from bigoted Facebook friends and misguided relatives to mainstream celebrities and YouTube influencers. With sharp humor and her trademark candor, Ramsey shows readers we can have tough conversations that move the dialogue forward, rather than backward, if we just approach them in the right way....

  • Adeshola Obafemi

    I loved it

    This book exceeded my expectations (which were already high as a kite). So proud of Chesca's journey and can't wait to see what she does next. Quick and easy read, extremely funny. The do's and dont's of activism broken down in only a way Chesca's could!

  • Balthasaar

    Like Francesca Ramsey, Loved hearing her stories and rise to limited fame. Was consistanlt amazed at how she found a niche for her particular set of talented hats that whe wares & found a way to thread the needle and get her foot int he door. Am eager for her to blow-up bigger. i.e comedian but hard to compete with people doing pure comedy as a career. activist, but routinely shouted down by everybody else doing more activism. Writer but tough to complete with people that do nothing but writ ...more

  • Cat C

    I received a copy of this in a Goodreads giveaway, and it has not affected my review.

    So, honestly, I'd never heard of this author before, and I'd never seen any of the YouTube videos she'd made, or even the original YouTube videos that inspired the parody she went viral for. However, the title grabbed me. "Well, that escalated quickly" is exactly what I've seen happen time and time again on various social media platforms whenever certain themes are in play (racism, sexism, identity, politics, et

    **I received an advanced review copy of this book through Goodreads Giveaways.**

    3.5 stars. This was a quick, easy read. This wasn't so much a memoir as it was a how-to primer on social media and activism. Ms. Ramsey's writing style is conversational, accessible and funny which made this book enjoyable to read. Anyone who is familiar with social media or activism, in general, may not find a lot of new information here but should still be able to enjoy this book.

  • Alex Meeks

    What a great read! Part memoir, part primer in social justice lingo, part guide to navigating social media. I first learned who Franchesca is from the video that propelled her to viral fame, and I've been a huge fan ever since. I think this book can appeal even to people who aren't familiar with her work. The memoir aspects might mean less, but she has a lot of things to say that not only educate on some issues of social justice, but give us lessons on how to most productively behave in our inte ...more

  • Naeemah Huggins

    I learned a whole lot. The internet is mean, people can be hateful and we live in the era of call out culture. I also learned that it's important to respect the culture and sensitivities of others, to stand solidly in my own truth while keeping an empathetic mindset and that it's useless to argue with internet trolls.

    Francesca moved my needle on a particular topic: interracial dating and marriage. It's already hard for them and their families to navigate and it's none of my business. To each his

    I received this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways. As always, an honest review.

    Well That Escalated Quickly: Memoirs and Mistakes of an Accidental Activist tells the story of Francesca Ramsey’s journey into activism. She starts as a YouTuber with a moderate following and still works her normal daytime job. When her video, Shit White Girls Say to Black Girls, goes viral her life changes. While it’s not immediate stardom, a lot of people have seen her videos and her voice reaches many more

    Franchesca is such a smart, honest, and funny voice, and it was so much fun to read through her stories and learnings. In a world where discourse on important issues often lacks nuance, and the people most often claiming to bring nuance/qualifiers to a discussion are doing it in bad faith, it was super refreshing to read Franchesca's really sincere and insightful explanations and experiences. She never lessens the importance of systematic problems but also lets them have some complexity, and tha ...more
