So, as an American person living inside a light brown body for 5 decades, I have experienced innumerable incidents of bias, micro-aggressions, and overt racism, and I've also been accused of not being black or Latina enough, and I have "passed" as white and I have had many white friends and lovers that even forget that I was not white like them. This is all to say, I've looked at this issue from many angles, and it's all confusing and visceral and overwhelming and exhausting.
If you are anything like me, you may welcome having resources to answer some questions, to help with difficult conversations, to assist in your self-education about this issue, and to help you get some answers. So here are some of my resources:
- Abolitionist Hall of Fame (located right here in Central NY!)
- My Grandmother's Hands by Resmaa Menakem (buy it from a black-owned bookstore, not Amazon)
- Building Anti-Racist Community through Feldenkrais®
- Seeing White Podcast
Hope this helps!
