“Racism is arguably the most complex and nuanced social dilemma since the beginning of this country, and yet nothing in dominant society gives us (white people) the information we need to engage across race with nuance and complexity. We do of course develop opinions on racism, but without years of sustained study, struggle, focus, mistake-making and relationship building, our opinions are not informed. In fact, they will most likely be ignorant. In the face of that ignorance, it is essential – and this is a life-long process that is never finished – to continually reach for humility, check our complacency, and build accountability to people of color.”
