“There is a strange kind of tragic enigma associated with the problem of racism. No one, or almost no one, wishes to see themselves as racist; still racism persists, real and tenacious.” –Albert Memmi
Today I’m keeping it short. I have a sick toddler and I can’t be my usual loquacious self. So I’m posting a video I came across when I was reading How to Write Women of Colour and Men of Colour if You Are White by Kayla Ancrum.
I was humbled that this young woman already possessed so much talent at her age and had the courage to express it. I felt the power of her words and her pain. It’s only several minutes long and it’s well worth the watch. [Note of caution: the f-bomb gets dropped, just in case you’re at work] And thanks to Kayla Ancrum for her article and for sharing this video.
