Read to Fight Racism

The recent tragedies and subsequent protests are indicative of a long, systemic history of racism. There are many,许多事情我们需要做的在全国范围内修复我们的固有破碎,但我们可以分别单独做的工作。

我们必须与工作积极地work—to become anti-racist. One of the most important ways to do this, for my fellow white brothers and sisters, is to listen,really listen,我们的兄弟和颜色的姐妹。

许多我们这里是书呆子。让我们来读出这些男人和女人的话的承诺。这是我们至少可以做的(应该是我们做的最少)。

I love this illustration from简山-below是指向展出的书籍:

(Note: There’s a few books in this list written by white writers. While I’m sure they’re excellent, let’s prioritize primarily hearing from BIPOC.)

I also recommend following Marla’s account白人女孩学习, where she posts about what she’s learning as she reads from BIPOC:

今年夏天,我们会阅读紫芙蓉通过Chimamanda Ngozi Adichi together inBooks & Crannies, if you’d like to join us:

We must, must,必须listen. And then take these words to heart, friends:

    很多人并不需要被教育关于民族或种族背景。William Hill体育有不同的种族和社会背景的人一个大致的了解。我尊重多样性,对我来说,没有一个人是逊色。关于阅读你推荐书的问题将William Hill体育是谁也不会变化,谁也不会读的书有一个更好的了解人的心态,并不会从他们的思想偏差。威廉希尔滚球体育投注作为一个拉丁我一生中我从来没有经历过种族欺凌。我确实承认拉丁美洲人被放下的现场工作人员和女性谁干净的房子,因为语言障碍。我被震惊的偏见。人们移民在这里更好的生活,但面对众多的种族不公正。

      嗨贝琳达,虽然生活在达拉斯地区,我丈夫和我有很多朋友拉丁我白。我公司给了我们和小时每星期来指导孩子在学校。我选择了西班牙裔女孩,四年级谁需要帮助有阅读和拼写。没有人在她的家庭寒冷的帮助她。几个星期后,我提出的问题清单喜欢去了解她,并填写了一个为自己给她。你知道她最喜欢的颜色,食品等领域的最后一个问题是她怎么想,当她长大。她写了像她妈妈一个人的侍女,她非常爱她。我没有问她答案。当我起身告辞,她说我真的想成为一名医生,但是她说不能因为她来自墨西哥。这一周,我抄女医生谁是来自墨西哥的文章。 I was able to mentor her to the end of high school. I helped her find ways to get scholarships etc. Today she is a doctor with a family herself. We are in touch regularly. I wanted to do this in other states bit they would not allow it. I don’t know why as I was never paid just volunteered. Be happy with you God made you special and always be proud. Tana

    Hi, Thank you for these books on racism. I love people of all color and have my whole life. In high school my best friend was Black American. We decided to go to the same college and were room mates. She is still one of my best friends. I have lived in different places in the South and have observed some terrible racism. I am white but not raised with prejudices. while living in Atlanta and Birmingham I met lots of ladies of color. I wanted to be better friends with them but they were never interested. So I have to say why not, what’s wrong with me? I wish I knew the answer. In a quote by a fantastic author Zora Neale Hurston the says “”Sometimes, I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry. It merely astonishes me. How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It’s beyond me.”. I wish I knew the answer for myself. Kindly thank you for reading my post. Tana

    为什么,哦,为什么,在列出所有这些奇妙的布吗ks would you only recommend one social media account and have that be a white woman? Are we, your white women readers, so childish and frail and self-absorbed that, even now, we can’t handle Black women speaking for themselves? Are we unable to hear the teachings of these brilliant BIPOC writers on racism unless they’re filtered through another White woman? This is not going to be easy… nothing worth doing is. Maybe we’ll learn to be better allies, faster, the sooner we get used to the idea that we and our feelings do not need to be the center of everything, all the time.
