My Good People: How it was possible that I was both a “good person” and utterly clueless

Chapter 17 of Waking Up White: and finding myself in the story of RACE by Debbie Irving

How would you complete this sentence? I never thought I could perpetuate racism because I am _____, and I believe _____.

I never thought I could perpetuate racism because I’m a Christian, and I believe in the humanity of all people. BUT I also know, now, in my old age, that Calvin was correct – people are no damned good!

If you would like to join me as I blog about my experiences with race, please read the book. It was life changing for me.
