As I reflect on the topics I JUST learned, I am so angry! I am angry these events occurred, I am angry I never knew about them, and I am angry that as a white female with many diverse friends, I have never REALLY understood how they feel and how they live their lives differently than myself and my family. It is not just about not seeing "color" differences, but more so educating myself and others to understand the oppression that has happened for hundreds of years and has not been corrected but more so imbedded and accepted in our society. How, me, a person who physically views people equally, if I really assess myself, have white privilege that causes me to un-conscientiously think differently about ALL people different than myself, because it is imbedded into my DNA. That makes me livid. So, now my question is, how do I reprogram my mind to think differently? How do I treat all people equal and on the same level and not go "overboard" to try to do the right thing causing discomfort? It is a fine line. One I need to continue to educate myself on.
