I want to be responsible for doing my part to eliminate the systemic racism in this country. I had some limited knowledge about most of the ways blacks and minorities are discriminated in this country. I feel overwhelmed and cannot begin to fathom the depths of how black people feel about this issue. I had no idea about the dehumanizing that went on at the border of Mexico and America. The constant ability of white people in America to dehumanize non-whites is sooooooo incredulous. It is so incredulous that when I was watching that video there was a light whisper in my head saying that this may have been necessary??? That is how bad it is, it is in our heads and we didn't even ask for that way of thinking to be there.
I wish my brain could absorb all these facts that I am learning so that when opportunities arise I could enlighten others but I know that I must first truly unlearn all the horrific messages that this sick system of power and righteousness by my white ancestors, leaders and country. So appreciative of this course and to all those people who are working to change and make amends for the damage caused by our systemic racist practices and beliefs.
