(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

On the Road: Dana & Danielle Boyd of LaPlace, LA #DismantlingWhiteousness
Twin sisters Dana & Danielle Boyd (Danielle was a student in my classroom at Fannie C. Williams 16 years ago) remember when their father, a minister about to graduate from Bible college, was murdered on their driveway. Adding insult to tragedy, the pink-skinned police officer quickly dismissed the entire thing as "just another drug crime." They also passionately believe in anti-racism as Christians.
