Charlottesville and Waking Up to Racism

Racism America

In this mini episode of the Sacred Tension Podcast, I reflect on the recent display of violence and racism in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Ashamed as I am to admit it, the Charlottesville protests were a wake up call for me. I realized that I have had the privilege to distance myself from the subject of race, and that I am complicit in systems of injustice. I admit to my ignorance and privilege, and I hope to learn more and become an even greater advocate of justice.

This will not be the first and last episode on racism in the United States. As I learn more, I hope to have more nuanced and helpful discussions on the podcast about race.
