Ok people! I know it is tough out there trying to navigate through the scary world wide web for resources on race and diversity. Luckily, I like you and want to help you learn how to be a better ally, how to understand whiteness and privilege, how to be antiracist, and how to start conversations with your kids about race. Go through the resources and read or watch a few of them. The insight you gain will help you when in conversations with people about these subjects. It will allow you to have better answers to race-based questions people will pose. Enjoy and this will be updated regularly.

4. It feels risky to say this and/but …
