Let’s Talk About Race – Day 2


Why should racism end Susan?

Hi CJ,

Racism is a system of oppression which treats people as more or less privileged based on the color of their skin.

I don’t believe in this system.

I don’t believe in oppressing anyone, much less a whole group of people for centuries.

Why is my skin color considered more favorable than yours?

I don’t accept that this inherited system is immutable.

I want to live an anti-racist life.

I want to inhabit a world where people value each human life.

If we talk openly about racism, we can stop oppressing each other, and we can end it.

Thanks for the opportunity to share this.

– Susan
