Click on the link for this excellent, highly topical article by Robin DiAngelo about the challenges white people (or any cultural elite) experience in adequately encountering and understanding complex realities and racial (or other) power dynamics, without collapsing into identity threat responses…. This is written from a U.S. perspective, but is just as relevant here.
An important read, and we agree the antidote lies in humility, authenticity, empathy and encounter.
Thank you to Monica Cassani and Kate Feathers on Facebook, and the Good Men Project for posting this.
