Chapter 17 - Success
”Policymakers and policies make societies and institutions, not the other way around. The United States is a racist nation because it’s policymakers and policies have been racist from the beginning.” Pg. 223
Being an antiracist is going to be a lifetime journey because there will always be policies that have to be checked and ideas evaluated as being racist.
Being an antiracist is supporting antiracist policies or expressing antiracist ideas.
Success is my learning and gaining new perspectives in becoming a better person for those around me. Recognizing my racist ideas and policies that I have supported is good but it will not stop there. This is an ongoing process that will never be complete.
