The actual fight

IMG_9560The 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.
