Honestly, once again, I knew too little. Breaking news is something I don’t have connection to these days, honestly. I am in a little starting-over-mothering-working-three-jobs bubble. I am blocking out the world a lot, which can be really good, but remember, the best way to overcome your stress and pain is to change the freaking topic from self to others.
I am caught up now.
And these here posts (below) by friends of mine say what needs to be said most. Please take time to openly receive these perspectives and learn from them. I feel the heart of a graceful humanity in these words. I do not feel the sometimes defensive and ignorant responses that are rooted in just not getting it.
Please read these:
Sarah Bessey – In which I have a few things to say about Ferguson
Preston Yancey – When this is about Ferguson
Heather Barmore – The Intersection of Race and Politics
(There are great lists of links on these posts for more education.)
