At the roots of our desire we are majestic, beautiful human beings.
You have your priorities, right?
Even if they’re not stated, it’s not hard to see that what you’re doing right now, is your priority. Right? Is it possible to be reading this and have a higher priority? If you’re reading this and you hear your baby cry or see something catch fire in your house, you would probably get up and attend to those things, changing your priority in that moment, right?
So here’s the test:
Read this quote, (it could be about anything but I chose something nice and juicy). For context this quote was said in response to what people should be doing to address their own racism. This owner of the quote wasn’t speaking philisophically, they were saying that people should take action based on this perspective.
Every action we take, every action we don't take, is either furthering existing systemic racism, failing to stop it, or actively undoing it.
Answer this question, is this a good way so solve the issues of racism that exist?
If so, why?
If not, why?
