The actual fight against racism
Is not to get other people to accept us,
Because that’s an approach steeped in insecurity
And plays on a never ending struggle to seek the approval of others.
No, the fight against racism is about justice.
Not simply because we feel victimized
And not because we feel guilty.
But because we truly believe that each of us is made in the image of God,
And that the hypocrisy of perpetuating false hierarchies in a world that was given to all of us as a gift,
Is too great a burden to bear.
