Reading your response made me realize that asking those who leap up and want to jump into organizing, gently and respectfully of course, how it is that they’re able to know what those harmed by racism want done?

I agree that we do have an aversion to admitting we don’t know something about race/racism and I think that aversion is part of the ideology of whiteness that drenches us 24/7. Facing up to not knowing…and even to not knowing what we don’t know is a needed and necessary step in the right direction, I suspect.

Like what you read? Give veganelder a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
