Whole Again: Reclaiming my human family, reclaiming myself.

Chapter 46 of Waking Up White: and finding myself in the story of RACE by Debbie Irving

There aren’t any questions at the end of this chapter. But Irving leaves us with this thought:

The good news is that everyone can do something to loosen racism’s hold on America. The bad news is that unless you set yourself up for success, trying to do something helpful can actually perpetuate racism. Take time to learn and engage with the problem in order to lower the chances of making the same mistakes I did.

Reading this book, and actually working through the questions at the ends of the chapters is another step I took to “learn and engage with the problem”. I encourage you to do the same.

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.
