“Racist ideas make people of color think less of themselves, which makes them more vulnerable to racist ideas. Racist ideas make White people think more of themselves, which further attracts them to racist ideas.”

This is a quote from beginning of Ibram Kendi’s How to be an Antiracist. He proceeds to go through the introduction of his book explaining some of his personal background and why the quote above holds truth.

Without giving more context from his book, what do you think Kendi means in this quote? Is there any truth in it? Try your best to play devil’s advocate here.

I’m interested in this exercise so I can steel-man this position and put up the best argument possible. Join the Engineering Politics Locals Community to become a part of the discussion.

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.
