Owning the Call to Be Agents of Change in Overcoming Racism

Tim Wise in the Rector’s Forum, Sunday, January 31, 2016:

“It is a poison — Whether it is privilege, or the myth of meritocracy, whether it is racism itself — and it is making us sick, those of us for whom that system was established. Maybe not as sick as those who are its targets, and I’m not saying that our suffering and pain equates in any way to that of people of color — but it does tell us that we’re all being poisoned from a common fountain. And if we’re going to get healthy we’re going to have to see ourselves as the collateral damage of that system of iniquity.”
