This blog includes my writing as well as information, stories, photos and re-blogs of current events which set my head/heart ablaze, including racism, white privilege, class, and gender, as well as the role capitalism has played in the demise of other countries' way of life. I do consider myself an ally, but I'm definitely not perfect. I make mistakes. I try to be accountable for my privilege(s) and how they have impacted my life and the lives of those I love, as well as the lives of those I've yet to meet. Please call me out if I say/blog something you question. I welcome challenging criticism when it comes from PoC about my allyship. I am a work in progress. My desire is to be part of a movement that is working towards global equity for all. With that said, I hope other white people will follow my blog to gain awareness of their privilege, and, as a result, be more intentional about the way they navigate the world. A note of caution, I re-blog a lot of powerful, vulnerable and thought-provoking information from the blogs of PoC whom I deeply respect and admire. Please take some time to scroll through my posts under the Racism and White Privilege link before you follow. I am not looking for debaters, and I especially don't want to be accountable for anyone's ignorance, racism or prejudice. So again, please just take some time to look around before you follow my blog, especially if you came to it by way of a re-blogged photo or meme. And if it makes sense for you to follow, then please do. Thanks, and welcome! I hope you will find it useful in some way.
