After going to a Town Hall discussion on race and ethnic groups at Harvard, and racism etc. in general, I posted this last week:
A friend of mine asked me a question last night at the town hall meeting on race and Harvard organizations that got me thinking: “when was the last time you saw a group of white people working together to end racism? I honestly didn’t know. But why is that? Shouldn’t all of us be just as concerned, me as someone who benifits from a racist system, as someone of color who is hurt by it? Shouldn’t white people care? I recommend this OpEd from yesterday and I’d love to hear what you think (whether you’re a whitie like me or not…)
To be frank, I’m pretty suprised that only two people cared to engage in the conversation, so with the hope that others will, I’d like to ask again: who’s responsible for combating racism AND do they live up to that responsibility?
