  • Review:  Complicated reaction to this "sermon".  I have to say that I felt challenged and interested.  I do not like the shaming that went on.  I am no more ashamed of being white than I am of being a woman, than I am of being fat.  So I will not be shamed for who I am.  But neither should anyone else be!  Clearly there are systemic issues which need to change and I am sure that I have some of the subtle bias that many people have trouble seeing in themselves.  I just have to say that I feel fear as a woman that transcends race.  It is all complexly part of who I am.  I just keep trying to speak out, do better, and embrace differences.  Tough read!
