In many ways I do feel more prepared to have conversations with others but I do still have some fear and uncertainty that I will need to continue to work through. I’m very grateful for the videos and resources that were shared. One simple thing I want to do is have some of the PDF resources available and visible in my office once campus reopens. I appreciated the comparison to having tough conversations with jumping out of an airplane when skydiving because it honestly does feel like that a lot sometimes. Recently it took me a solid 30 minutes to respond back to a comment a friend had made online questioning the legitimacy of a statement being labeled a Microaggression. I knew what I wanted to say but I was so worried about the framing and how it would be received. It went well and I’m glad I said something but it took significantly more effort than I feel like it should have. This training has provided a lot of great tools and context though and I look forward to slowly but surely continuing my journey to be anti-racist in our society.
