Days 8 – 14: Checking my own biases

During Days 8 through 14, the author suggested that it was best that those of us working through the material not share out insights because it would be potentially hurtful and wounding the the BIPOC in our lives. That was a fair ask and I felt it was key to honor it. Instead, I discussed it with other white people working through the material. It was enlightening and uncomfortable to poke around in biases that I felt previously immune to because of my relationships and environment. Most clearly, I am aware of the work to be done in my heart and the fact that I will only ever be able to call myself an anti-racist again, rather than claim that I am not at racist.
