Disappointed in myself and my country

I’m sad and shamed it took me so long to see the racism in myself and my country. It’s so much a part of my thought processes, my brain now feels wrong. I’m eager to do the hard work of learning to listen, how to drop my agenda and expectations of others, how to drop pride for the good things I do (especially if that means viewing others as inferior or ‘poor’). I’m also very confused, now, about how to participate in any form of the American church, which seems to continue to play a leading role in promoting white privilege.
