    About this event

    Most of us can identify blatant racism when we see it, such as slurs, defacing property, hate groups, and racially motivated assaults. In this Next Step, we’ll talk about how white folks - unwittingly, sometimes, or even quite intentionally - harm Black people and other people of color. Examples include: dismissing the lived experiences of People of Color, “playing devil’s advocate”, and most dangerously, “white caller crimes.” Daily acts that may seem excusable, even harmless often escalate dangerously, and they are happening all over this country, from Starbucks to Central Park, backyards to college campuses. Some white women have complained that it hurts to be called "a Karen": What does that mean? How we can avoid "being a Karen" and change these painful, even life-threatening behaviors?
