As I worked my way through Module 1, I found myself amazed at the many connections between race and oppression that I was not aware of. I originally thought of these things as “hidden connections” but then realized that I carry that viewpoint due to the position of privilege I hold. I don’t frequently live out the negative reality of many of these connections so I don’t see them unless they are specifically pointed out. That absolutely does not diminish the reality that they are clearly there. The connection are not hidden-I just need to focus my eyes beyond my lived experience.
