These cards are important not only to inform us of visitors, but also to let us know attendance. This helps us to mark who has or hasn’t been to see us. Do we need to call to check on them?
This week in Waking up White….
This week – In Chapter 26, Surviving Versus Thriving, Debby explores the psychic cost of racism. She writes about times she has felt underappreciated, invisible, or misunderstood. When she feels like she doesn’t belong, she goes into survival mode—her humor, creativity, and compassion and ability to connect seize up, and she becomes a smaller, weaker version of herself. Debby compares that to the experience people of color have in American society every day.
Question: Think about a time when you were treated unfairly. What do you recall of your emotions (e.g., elevated heart rate, stomach clenching, sweating)? How did you respond to the unfair treatment?
