What are your thoughts about white exceptionalism, guilt, and shame? Have you felt that way? Have you been driven by toxic white guilt? Share your thoughts with the other participants.
I think the thing that is clear to me is the fact that I need to keep learning. Oooh the many mistakes I have made. I know that I have said and done things that have caused harm in my past - and I did them not knowing that they were harmful (looking back, I wonder how I missed it, but I did). Well, when you know better, you can do better. I'm thankful for the mentors around me who I have learned from (both white and POC). And I need to keep learning.
