Our mission is simple - reveal the naked truth about RACISM in America and UNLEASH YOUR POWER as white women to dismantle it. This isn’t the stuff of Trump, the KKK and Nazis. That’s easy, it’s obvious and denouncing it requires almost nothing of white folks. What’s hard? Looking at yourself in the mirror and acknowledging that, as a white person in America, you are an active participant in upholding white supremacy. This isn’t personal. This doesn’t make you bad. This is systemic. And this makes you human who is part of that system. As Black and Brown women, we too are humans who are part of the system. Only we are on the other side: we are on the receiving end of white supremacy while you are on the giving end. Until and unless white women are willing to disrupt white supremacy, we will never see change. White women: you have the power to disrupt and dismantle the hate.
That is where the Race 2 Dinners come in.
white women: We are talking about your complicity in upholding white supremacy and keeping us Brown and Black women down. Our goal is to reveal white privilege, power, control and your complicity in all of the above. You are an integral part of this system. Please use this power to dismantle the hate rather than to uphold it.
Making white women comfortable isn’t our goal.
Our goal is to be seen, to be heard, and to have you, white women, acknowledge how you've caused us harm. Only then can you start doing the work to dismantle the system of white supremacy. A system that's killing us all.
white women: stop centering everything on you and your feelings.
