Through honesty, we can all grow.

For everyone living in today’s society; we can all grow if we are honest with our choices, words, & actions. Honesty; that time when my a group of my white friends and I changed the letters on a church sign to say, “church of the nig,” I realize that was wrong. We meant it out of no immediate racism, but it was an action that was a product of the institutionalized racism in our society today. I am ashamed of my actions, but I will grow, and keep growing so that subtle oppression has no root in my life.
