“Racism is to social progress what cockroaches are to nuclear fallout — extraordinarily resilient.” (Charles Blow.)
When will we ever learn?
If you are Caucasian, it would be good if you could remind yourself to do at least one thing today: Be conscious of racist tendencies within yourself and around you. It begins with the simple confession that such tendencies exist. If you find yourself resisting the need to utter such a confession, that’t the first sign that you have a problem.
“Devotion” is not just an attitude; it is action. Let’s devote ourselves to honest confession and to redemptive action.
A blessed Tuesday.
