I've been seeing this come across my Instagram the past few days from friends and I have to admit that it's been getting to me. I am struggling with the notion that even though I do not discriminate against anyone based on race, sex, religion, sexual orientation, etc. that I am somehow taking advantage of a privileged system and have to actively work to be "anti-racist". I guess being a good person just isn't enough anymore. Any words of advice on how to not get stuck in this negative train of thought would be greatly appreciated ❤️
Went to a friend’s birthday party at her unbelievable house last night. Fantastic music, food and atmosphere. @davidjanet even got me to dance. Of course the police showed up and apologized for even having to be there. After a little chaos the party continued. Life finds a way! (Yes, there were fire-wielding belly dancers!)
How’s your weekend going?
