My Confession

“As a result of being a white person raised in this society, I have a racist world-view. I have deep racist biases, I have developed racist patterns, and I have investments in the system of racism because it’s served me really well. It’s helped me overcome the barriers that I do face. 

“I also have an investment in not seeing any of that for what it would suggest to me about my identity and what it would require of me. I didn’t choose any of that; I don’t feel guilty about it. It’s a result of being raised in this society in which racism is the bedrock.” – Robin DiAngelo

I’ve thought I don’t “act racist”, but I’ve failed to be an anti-racist voice, and was completely oblivious to the system that helped me while hurting others.

I need to do better. We need to do better.
