You really can’t grow up to be colorblind when you are not white.

Frankly, I’m kind of over all the “white people” framing… it seems counter intuitive to an anti-oppressive platform. BUT… I do believe it has a place in some justice oriented work. I say that to say, the title makes me uncomfortable but I support you and your decision to use it!! I also love how you shared your internal process with whether to use the title or not. And as a budding justice writer myself, I absolutely appreciate your level of transparency. Wow! It reinforced an article I read earlier today by Audre Lorde… “Silence to Language and Action.” We all have a story to tell and a style in which we have to tell it!! So to that, let me just encourage you… keep on keepin' on my friend!
