It is not possible to care any less about the royal family than I do. But Lord have mercy, Sharon Osbourne’s freak out on “The Talk” provides an opportunity that is just begging for us to review chapter 11 of Robin DiAngelo’s book White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard For White People To Talk About Racism, titled “White Women’s Tears.”
Race and Faith

A conversation with a rabbi, an imam, a pastor, a Baha’i, and a “spiritual, but not religious” type. Find yourself and your faith-based reason to stand up to racism in this complete hour and 45 minute conversation. Shalom, Amen, “Love & Light,” As-salmu alaykum all = NO room for white supremacy here.
D.C. Riot Response As Validation Of White Fragility

Authorities’ tepid response to white, armed protestors storming the Capitol Building on January 6 was because the “powers that be” knew the sight of teargas, bullets and force against white people wasn’t going to play on t.v. screens in Peoria.

Often white folks are stymied in their outreach efforts for fear of saying or doing something racist or insensitive. Life itself is a series of mistakes, correction, learning, and bridges being built as a result.
Next Sunday we’re all invited to “confess” racial gaffes we’ve made in the past. My hope is you’ll find that a) black folks aren’t as fragile as you think and b) your faux pas aren’t enough to initiate the countdown sequence for the final annihilation of the universe.
