I read Rachel Cargle’s article this morning “How to Talk to Your Family About Racism on Thanksgiving.” and it really shouted to me what I’ve been trying to articulate for the past few days over on my FB (I shared some screenshots of an exchange yesterday) but more than that, how to break things down so (white) people understand that white privilege has nothing to do with who you are as a person and everything to do with a system of oppression that spans back to the beginning of time.
I’m sharing it here for anyone who doesn’t quite have the words and needs a little help with how to speak to people about racism.
Feel free to share. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Decided to have a fancy 3-course meal at a nice restaurant, because why not? 😂
Green mango salad & rice wraps were really good. Grilled chicken was tender and bursting with juices. Passion fruit mousse cake was super airy and light so it’s a perfect ending to my meal!
KOTO is a non-profit social enterprise that trains at-risk and disadvantaged youth. The chefs and the serving crew are all trainees and I must say, the service here is impeccable. Very impressive!
To know me not as I
appear to be but as I really am, you must study me when :
I'm Angry ..
I'm in love ..
Money is involved ..
I'm eating alone and unobserved ..
I'm writing ..
I'm in trouble ..
I'm joyful and triumphant ..
I'm melancholy and defeated ..
I'm facing a catastrophe ..
I'm trying to make a good impression on others ..
I'm informed of another's misfortune ..
I'm informed of another's fortune ..
Im losing any sort of game ..
I'm winning at a game
I'm alone in a meditative state ....
And then through these open windows you may literally walk right into my soul and take a look at the REAL ME !! 🤔💭🤷
