"One reason these discussions are hard is because people believe that a racist is a bad person, that it’s a fixed category, so therefore they don’t want to be called that. People conceive of the term “racist” as an attack and also feel ashamed if they are indeed saying or doing something that’s racist. Having conversations about racism is deeply personal to people, so we have to recognize that. But at the same time, I don’t know of a way in which we can have a discussion about anything that is problematic about a person that’s going to be easy." This is Ibram X. Kendi. He wrote, "How to be an Anti-Racist". After I read an interview with him I put his book next on my list. Read the interview from the @washingtonianmag and get the book. We all need to do more and learn more about what we don't know. This is where can start. #startnow #livesmatter #stopracism #stopracismnow
