The first thing I thought of as I started writing this post was that I had not created an account in order to engage in these reflective posts. I was well satisfied with asking myself the questions, and journaling on my own without the 'extra hassle'. I felt it wasn't useful, because who would read it. And as I watch the videos for this Module, I realize that this was a perfect example of my own personal brand of WhiteExceptionalism. I'm doing the training, good enough, right? No. It is no longer good enough to be engaging on my own. I must be willing to take social risks, take time and energy, take space with these issues. It means making peace with my Guilt, which has frozen me in the past. What can I do? It's out of my hands. What I do is not Good Enough. And my White Shame, making me share posts and speak on things that I do not understand fully, but try to regurgitate. White exceptionalism is a new term for me, a greatly needed one. One that will help me use my Guilt and Shame towards Accountability, rather than towards Toxic erasure and avoidance.
