Monday Morning Wisdom #340

I think a lot of white people understand racism in theory, but when it comes to how that stuff plays out in their interpersonal relationships, it kind of stops there. The thing I’m always going to advocate for more than anything is white people talking to their white people about the things they do and say. At the end of the day, people of color don’t really need more help. What we need is for white people to do the work within their community.

~ Rachel Olzer, quoted in “Joy and Danger in the Twin Cities,” Sierra Magazine, Fall 2021
