Reflection 1: I definitely struggle with white exceptionalism, white guilt and white shame. It is hard not to want to see only the good in yourself, to blame other white people or previous generations. It is uncomfortable to think about how I have been complicit and how I continue to benefit from racism and privilege and how I carry bias with me. I want to be "one of the good ones." If I'm not, I want to start the work and know there is an endpoint where I become "one of the good ones." It is a difficult realization to reach that this will never happen. That there will always be more that I can learn, more that I can and should do.
