How has your life been affected by racism? What do you personally need to heal right now?
Race is the most diabolical vehicle for dehumanization ever created. We should stop racializing and work to create an aracial world.

Having been born and raised on the Canadian prairie and lived in Florida for over 20 years, it saddens me that the slave-trader created lie known as "race" continues to be such a core aspect of identity and social organization after so many centuries of blood and tears. My first experiences becoming aware of race as a 7 or 8 year old, and the 40+ years since, have left me convinced that race is arguably the worst idea that humanity has ever imposed upon itself. In my opinion, it is a mistake to value/elevate/cherish/perpetuate this dehumanizing insidiousness. To truly be anti-racist, one should be anti-race (or aracial if you prefer).
