The Heart of Whiteness: Confronting Race, Racism and White Privilege

The Heart of Whiteness: Confronting Race, Racism, and White Privilege - Robert Jensen what i love about robert jensen his how totally honest he is in his writing, which (if you take the challenge) makes you a more honest reader. his willingness to really delve deep gives inspiration and permission for us to do the same, which is crucial if we want to address the issues of patriarchy and privilege in our society.i think this quote gives a good partial reason for why i have to quit my job:"I can live with the anger; I can manage it and find ways to vent it in the company of allies and friends. But the sadness is less controllable; it simply sits in me. Putting that sadness into words so it can be vented is more difficult, sometimes impossible."
