Submitted by Renee BuddingBodhi on Tue, 1/17/2017, 7:00am
Welcome to Day 2. Please be sure to read about the challenge here before posting comments.
Today watch the Jay Smooth TED Talk - “How I learned to stop worrying and love discussing race.” On a scale of 0-5, rate how comfortable you are talking about race and racism.
0 = I would rather not talk about race/racism.
1 = I am very uncomfortable talking about race/racism.
2 = I am usually uncomfortable talking about race/racism.
3 = I am sometimes uncomfortable talking about race/racism.
4 = I am usually comfortable talking about race/racism.
5 = I am very comfortable talking about race/racism.
How might you and others become more comfortable talking about race and racism?
This is also a good time to write your own autobiography of racial awareness and look at our own history through the "race" lense. What stands out? What are the implications? You can share as much of this discovery as you feel comfortable.
