Day 18: 21 Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge

Watch a few of these videos in the #RaceAnd video series.  This series explores the ways that race compounds and intersects with all the other issues faced by people of color. Each video features a different artist, activist, or thinker, sharing their lived experience of how race intertwines with their other identities, and how that mix impacts their lives both personally and systemically.

What do you think about the intersectionality of different aspects of how people of color are seen?  Does it affect your understanding of your own bias?

I believe if I ignore intersectionality I ignore a big part of bias and -ism's that need to be addressed.

You have a remarkably empathetic approach to life. I think when most people scream about inequity, they are thinking mainly of themselves. By wrapping themselves up in a larger group, they feel it gives more impact but as soon as they personally get what they want it stops being so important. I could be wrong but that is my sense of it.
