"Things like racism are institutionalized. You might not know any bigots. You feel like “well I don’t hate black people so I’m not a racist,” but you benefit from racism. Just by the merit, the color of your skin. The opportunities that you have, you’re privileged in ways that you might not even realize because you haven’t been deprived of certain things. We need to talk about these things in order for them to change."
How important are your ancestors to you, have you taken the time out to remember them this week gone? And for the week ahead?
‘According to African philosophy, the departed are spiritual forces which can influence their living descendants. In this their only purpose is to increase the life force of their descendants.’ - Janheinz Jahn
