Nationally, it is a convenient time for White (liberal) America to discuss race because the Trump Era political agenda has particularly emboldened the alt right…Charlottesville….confederate flags/statues…police brutality
I want to hone in on that “it is a convenient time” piece because I believe that when we talk about race and race-relations, it is critically important to identify who are the critical leaders by examining whom is really running the conversation. Identifying these underlying persons/institutions/systems is particularly important because it allows those involved to identify if the conversation will be sustainable, honest and/or held with integrity or if the conversation is only a guise for another underlying agenda.
