I learned non doesn’t mean anti.

I’m just on the tip of the iceberg learning about white privilege, and that being non-racist, which I am, doesn’t mean you’re anti-racist. It’s an often humiliating awakening: realizing that while I thought I was living my values of equality, I’ve benefited my entire life from simply being white. And being “nice” doesn’t mean I’ve actually been doing a thing to dismantle our country’s systemic racism. I’m educating myself fiercely and DOING. I will be doing for the rest of my life.
