“There seems to be this misconception that [insert race here] are born with some super knowledge of all things related to our history, culture, present and future. But we had to find authors. We had to read history books. And then re-read corrections to those history books. We had to search the “ethnic” section in bookstores. Were there recommendations along the way? Definitely. But no one handed us a guide-to-understanding-racism-and-anti-blackness + a-3-step-plan-to-fight-against-both-in-the-bonus-pages.”
Don’t expect women of color to teach you about racism, the resources are available to all of us. Teach yourself!
