Trying something here. Been thinking a lot about my role/responsibility in the #socialinnovation sector lately and one of the things that always plagues me when I talk about my experiences is that, I had never truly felt racialized until I was in social innovation spaces. (1/9)
Here's an example, that time when I was at a social innovation conference and during the morning icebreaker at a table of 8 other folks, I was the only POC - a white woman said to us, that her white sons are often the #visibleminorities in a room. (2/9)
I was dumbfounded. I had to pause and swallow my anger. I calmly explained that she misunderstands the term #visibleminorities - while her white sons might "visibly" be the only white folks in the room, they still get to leave that room as white males. (3/9)
