This Is Gonna Hurt

This long, calm, cogent account contains much that triggers furious resentment, but also insight about what we’re fighting when we struggle for equality and justice, and what we must do to prevail.  It’s not just what’s out there–like this piece and the worldview it represents–that needs attention;  we need to take a good hard look at what *in ourselves* is still infected and unhealed.

Part of my horrified anger at this piece is at the part of myself that was tempted to buy what it’s selling.

Content warning: defense of white supremacy disguised as benevolent peacemaking.
