This was one that I have had to really reflect on, and have done so more recently in the past month. This section really reinforced this. As someone who has been working on the concept(s) of racism since the late 90s, has a masters degree in social work, is a licensed social worker with a code of ethics, as well as an educator - for years I took for granted that my educational experiences was enough - I wasn't racist. I didn't need to work on this, because I already knew that I wasn't racist. I always viewed myself as an ally and at the same time was just not doing enough on-going work.
Reframing this as becoming antiracist, understanding the level of ongoing commitment as well as the ongoing internal reflection, is empowering & liberating and intensely intimidating. Having to acknowledge that I know so much and at the same time I have so far to go is humbling and an ego check.
