Thank you Henery X (long), I couldn’t agree with you more. I was an elementary school teacher and I have two children of my own. Every opportunity I had and still do I bring up equality, differences, anti-racism to children and now I’m a therapist in private practice to teens and adults. I challenge them sometimes gently and sometimes not. Every little bit helps and your words help me greatly to keep my eyes wide open and to learn how wide and deep systemic racism is embedded. Phew. Thank you. Deeply respect and appreciate your words and insights.
