Holy Post - Race in America | June 2020
We need to talk about race. Why are people angry? Why so upset? Didn't we elect a black president? Pass civil rights laws? Isn't racism illegal now?

Why are people still angry? Let's take a look at race in America...
The Difference between being “not racist” and antiracist | TED Talk (51:06)
There is no such thing as being "not racist," says author and historian Ibram X. Kendi.

Now more than ever, it's important to look boldly at the reality of race and gender bias -- and understand how the two can combine to create even more harm.

In this moving talk, she calls on us to bear witness to this reality and speak up for victims of prejudice.

Words and their multiple uses reflect the tremendous diversity that characterizes our society. Indeed, universally agreed upon language on issues relating to racism is nonexistent. We discovered that even the most frequently used words in any discussion on race can easily cause confusion, which leads to controversy and hostility. It is essential to achieve some degree of shared understanding, particularly when using the most common terms. In this way, the quality of dialogue and discourse on race can be enhanced.
