    Right there with you. We are going backwards. I’m awake and terrified! And I’ve learned that if the people in our lives aren’t as outraged as we are about what they see, they’re not the people we need to keep around anyway. We shouldn’t mourn letting them go. They are part of the problem. Not us.

  2. Great post & I’m loving the variety of your blog. I can definitely relate with the “just a joke” stuff. Even at this so called “Christian university” I have encountered racism; for example, numerous people her use the n word in everyday language and justify it by saying “it’s just a joke” or “I don’t mean it in a bad way”. And I’m expected to act as if I’m not bothered by it. It’s thinking like that that numbs people to the tragedies that happen as a result of racism.
