antiracist practice for white people

As our white bodies become increasingly uncomfortable with racist harm in our communities, we often turn to bodies of culture* and ask some variation of the question, what can I do to help?

embedded in this question are (at least) three hurtful assumptions:

  • bodies of culture should educate our white bodies about race and racism
  • white bodies can help end racism without having an understanding of our role in it
  • individual white bodies, detached from our broader cultural community, can help end racism


cultural coherence affirms that: 

  • white bodies can educate ourselves and each other**
  • white bodies can recognize and address the ways our own bodies and voices are causing harm¬†
  • our efforts to end racist harm must happen in community with fellow white bodies
