In this series, we have been looking at things that white people and people of color can do to “fix” racism, so to speak. In this last episode of the “I Can Fix It” series, we will address the last suggestion for white people, a suggestion called “take action.” By this point in the journey, author Damali Ayo is assuming that white people ready to “take action” have developed lifestyle practices of admitting they have a race and therefore are knowledgeable and comfortable talking about their whiteness. These white people know how to listen to people of color, and make it a practice to continue listening at all times. These white people have taken the initiative to do their own self-education, and have broadened their experiences to have routine meaningful connections with people of color throughout their week. These are white people, who now are ready, to “take action” and do something to fight racism.
Our multiethnic team was all present to talk about this topic as we gathered around the microphones to make this final recording of the “I Can Fix It” series.
