    It’s great to have these links together; thanks for sharing. I have shared a couple of these with my social circle this week and already I know at least one or two people who have admitted to prior ignorance, expressed gratitude for new (to them) information, and went on to share with their loved ones. I especially like the “12 things white people can do now…” article because even years after recognizing the reality of institutional racism in this country, I still find myself at a loss as to how best to be a part of the solution, other than trying to vote responsibly and calling acquaintances out on occasional racist bs, for example. There are more ideas and resources out there than I realized, and that’s great news.

    Thanks for these links Greta. I think I read them all. I made the mistake of reading the accompanying comments though, and it made me very upset. Gonna have to take a break now. 🙁
