(rhymes with Self-Righteousness) I celebrate how being in mutually vulnerable friendships with people of all colors has taught me a more balanced perspective on reality. I lament Anglo-America's aggressive fragility in regards to racial injustice, so I write and compile from a Jesus-following perspective of setting tables towards respect and relationship. This is not anti-white people, but anti-Whiteousness: against the concept that white ideals, ideas, and people are superior. (c) 2016-18

Tearing Hate Off the Wall
Today, waiting on the city bus after school, C saw the n-wordMarvin taught her a few weeks ago. Without a second thought, she started to peel it off. I went to stop her, and she sternly said, "well, we can't just leave it up!"
Too true. Some people write about dismantling white supremacy, in all of its overt and subtle forms. Others take more direct action.
