I feel like I have experienced white guilt before. I also found it interesting that having these conversations with only white people involved was actually encouraged. I originally thought that it should involve people of color as well. I now see that this kind of group structure allowed some good questions to be evoked that could then lead into the hard conversations that could be brought up for discussion with friends of color. I liked how the question of what to do in regards to school was addressed. I think many of our policies on discipline are biased as well. Did i think this, as an educator, prior to this training? No. I've always tried to keep my students in the class until I just couldn't find any other easy to reach them with discipline. This is making me realize that some changes need to occur. I know that I give more chances to my students of color after teaching in a fully African American school and learning how parents reacted to calls about misbehavior. I also learned the best thing I could do is contact the parents when the kids were doing well. It makes me question myself as to whether I focus in because of some ingrained bias that I'm not aware of. This raised a lot of emotions and questions for me. At this point I'm just seeking to learn more and more so I can adjust and change where I need to.
