k_lude203 An older article, but one worth reading nonetheless - "Mychal Denzel Smith - Last week, I argued that a repeal of so-called "Stand Your Ground" laws and the outlawing of racial profiling are necessary but insufficient to prevent murders like that of Trayvon Martin. On Twitter, someone asked me, "What's your solution?" My short answer: white people have to give up racism.

As complicated an issue as race has become in the United States, that might sound like an overly simplistic answer, but it's the root of it all. While we've all come up internalizing racism, since it's all around us, only one group of people actually benefits from its existence. Not every white person is a racist, but the genius of racism is that you don't have to participate to enjoy the spoils. If you're white, you can be completely oblivious, passively accepting the status quo, and reap the rewards.

Over time, those living on the other side, whether black, Latino, Asian, or Native American, have fought back and shamed white people into sharing the power and the spoils of capitalism. A few people of color have managed to achieve levels of success, as we typically define it, that rival their white counterparts. So, a popular narrative has become, "These few tokens beat the odds, why can't all of you?" In fact, no one defeats racism; they just succeed in spite of it. But most don't.

No, it's not the job of people of color to win over racism, it's the responsibility of white people to abandon it altogether. We've reached a point here in America, though, where we believe the worst of racism is over and the remaining animus is either not worth mentioning or dying off. Neither is true. Racism is the foundation; it literally built this country. It's going to keep showing up. Denying that doesn't solve the problem, it exacerbates it, making it so we can't ever achieve real solutions.cont. below

jedah.mayberry Jedah Mayberry | Austin, TX | The Unheralded King of Preston Plains Middle | Jedah Mayberry | English | Literary Fiction | 'The Unheralded King of Preston Plains Middle tells a story of dislocation. A mother loses her eldest son. The other son loses his only brother. He ventures into the world alone. The boys’ father, estranged from the family ahead of his son’s death, loses his hold on everything dear to him. A grandfather stands by, calling on his spirit gods to piece his family back together, to pull the mother from her depression, to reestablish ties for the remaining brother back to home.' #ireadCOLOR because, conditioned by our collective time spent on this planet, we take a layered view of the world, possess a soulfulness that permits us to plumb depths in emotion, character, human spirit that oftentimes go overlooked in mainstream literature. #iwriteCOLOR because I fundamentally believe each of us deserves to see his/her story told. As a writer, I work to examine the human condition in the clearest light I can muster. #readCOLOR #ireadCOLOR #writeCOLOR #iwriteCOLOR #books #literature #authorsofcolor #poc #diasporas #writers #readers #goodreads #instagood #tumblr #twitter #follow #summerreading #book #love #bookclub #literacy #global 4h

shah__noor The diversity of people in California is both refreshing and comforting, what's even more lovely is to see this diversity reflected in public spaces. Large pieces of art featuring young people of color as their main subjects - how inspiring for the new generation! #art #losangeles #mural #portrait #poc #woc #youngpeople #diversity #inclusion #california #peopleofcolor #wisdom 5h
