The Great Silence
Unraveled Wednesday

Forward

I have purchased books and donated money. Tomorrow I will do more. And the next day, and the day after that, and... I will do better.

I'm ashamed of how little I know, but I can learn, and do better. Forward is the only way.

That's such a great quote and an excellent reminder that we can commit and recommit over and over.

Yes! Katie shared a wonderful quotation with me last night (source https://scottwoodsmakeslists.wordpress.com/2014/01/03/5-things-no-one-is-actually-saying-about-ani-difranco-or-plantations/) "So while I agree with people who say no one is born racist, it remains a powerful system that we’re immediately born into. It’s like being born into air: you take it in as soon as you breathe. It’s not a cold that you can get over. There is no anti-racist certification class. It’s a set of socioeconomic traps and cultural values that are fired up every time we interact with the world. It is a thing you have to keep scooping out of the boat of your life to keep from drowning in it. I know it’s hard work, but it’s the price you pay for owning everything." - Scott Woods.
The metaphor of the "keep scooping" is so helpful.
