A Note About Tonight’s Workshop: Is Anti-Racism Work “One and Done?”

#BLM_note2

Are these people racists?

Are they part of the white supremacy system?

Is anti-racism work “one and done?”

Since most of the subscribers to this blog are members of First Unitarian Church, I want to clarify something about tonight’s “I Am Not a Racist!” workshop. It is not a rehash of the several workshops and meetings that First Unitarian has done about racism and white supremacy. 

Rather, two experienced workshop leaders from the Coalition to Dismantle the New Jim Crow are tonight’s presenters. Although some of the concepts that will be discussed tonight may not be new to anti-racist UUs, the content of the workshop will be different.

And besides, even if this is your 30th workshop about racism, you will find it valuable. Been there and done that? Think again: One or two experiences of confronting the white supremacy do not make it possible for us to say, in all honesty, “I am not a racist.” 

In peace,

Jeff
