Have you ever asked yourself what your childhood taught you about race?
I read this great paper by Robin DiAngelo, who looks at how people think about and deal with race and diversity, particularly white people. She came up with a set of six questions people can ask themselves.
For six Sundays, I’m going to post one of DiAngelo’s six questions, as I rewrote them so they’re not just for white people.
You can find all these questions under the tag “Childhood teaching about race.”
When I became aware of people of races, ethnicities, and countries of origin other than my own, what was I told about them?
