When Your White Friends Are More Racially-Educated Than You

Racial Education and Humility

There’s a lot to learn about racism. A lot. But knowing everything there’s to know about racism isn’t the important part — being willing to learn is. And friends, there’s a lot that we can learn from each other.

Education and Conversations

It’s also important to remember that not everyone wants to have a conversation. Some want to argue. Some want to have their guilt absolved. Some want their problematic opinions affirmed. And some just need to learn — they’re well-intentioned but not ready for a conversation. We are all this person at one point or another.
