My Privileged White Thoughts
In response to studying systemic racism and examined my identity as a white person, I started journaling. Journaling provided a record of processing my understanding of race and my personal role within the system. To create this piece, I wrote out every sentence from my journaling that contained the word white as it pertained to race. This rope of sentences speaks to the long process of developing a realistic understanding of race. The words and sentences are continuous, as is the impact of racism in our country.
