This Thursday, take 5 minutes to watch and think about this short video from anti-racism trainer Matthew Kincaid from Overcoming Racism based in New Orleans. Yes, the message in this video is directed to white people, but everyone benefits from taking in the fundamental messages here about race and racism.

What really resonates with me is “what can I do to lighten the load on Black persons/bodies/groups”. As a privileged white person, I have to work everyday to check my white privilege, sometimes I can, sometimes I miss the mark. But it is something I have to work on every single day. Now, I have active another activity I can keep in the forefront of my mind and I so appreciate this guidance, it is really helpful. I can/must think about (and take appropriate action) what can I do to decrease the burden on the Black community. This is very helpful and I am grateful to Peggy Chinn and Matthew Kincaid for bringing this to my attention.
Thank you for posting the conversation with Dr. Kendi and Matthew Kincaid.
