#Racism and #WhiteFragility

Important question to raise.


Please read this entire thread, and watch the youtube clips. (Yes, I have watched all, and three times now). This is important if we are going to overcome our internal racism.
Animus is NOT a required component in racism.
#Racism is by-product of #institutionalpower.

#WhiteFragility preserves 'order' whether or not intended.
Important to remember.
#WhitePrivilege, #InstitutionalRacism manifests sometimes in the form of blaming the blacks. It becomes 'code word bonding' and wittingly or unwittingly goes to preserve the status quo. Knowingly or otherwise, it is #WhiteFragility.

@PriyamvadaGopal They been #gaslighting us with statistics showing 0.02% improvement, getting a #Diversity Award fancy venue, picture in press. All the while there is no perceptible change in our lived experience because they own what is ‘knowledge’ & it ain’t lived #BAME experience. @CIPD_Policy
@PriyamvadaGopal First our individual lived experiences are ignored, fragmented into individualised experiences not a whole systemised thing so we doubt our own eyes & ears, sanity. We becme invisible then dehumanised in2 statistics with no names 2save them looking in2 our eyes & seeing our pain.
