“Welfare Queen” By Amy Sherald

“While there is no biological race as we understand it (see chapter 2), race as a social construct has profound significance and shapes every aspect of our lives. Race will influence whether we will survive our birth, where we are most likely to live, which schools we will attend, who our friends and partners will be, what careers we will have, how much money we will earn, how healthy we will be, and even how long we can expect to live. This book does not attempt to provide the solution to racism. Nor does it attempt to prove that racism exists; I start from that premise. My goal is to make visible how one aspect of white sensibility continues to hold racism in place: white fragility.”

A question for everybody: but when you interact with people, do you find out all their above information before making judgments? Artist: Amy Sherald
