Not just not racist, but antiracist

I am taking the evening off. I am tired, but not from working, but thinking about racism, my role in it, and learning to listen, really listen. I aspire to be antiracist and this podcast helps me understand why it is important. Antiracism actually helps bring everyone up.

And this BBC article shows why non-violent protests work to bring about change. We are on our way. And this one shows peaceful protests depend on police behavior.

Seattle is learning and showing its support. We are not overrun, we are in solidarity.
