“White people, learn from Jane Elliott”
“A riot is the language of the unheard.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
I take work breaks by watching Trevor Noah or Stephen Colbert or Samantha Bee.
This week, Stephen Colbert had rapper Killer Mike on his show, and Killer Mike issued a challenge to all white people:
TODAY: spend an hour learning from Jane Elliott on YouTube.
The video above is a 4 minute start to learning with Jane.
The video is called “All White People Are Racist“
If you don’t like that title of the video, all the more reason to watch it and learn.
She is incredible. In her decades of teaching, she has endured death threats. Since she is a widow, she says “killing me is not the worst thing you could do to me – I would be with my husband again.”
This video is only 4 minutes long.
I challenge you to watch this video, then watch more of her work.
Then send it to everyone you know. Post it on social media.
On Monday, I am going to see if at least 500 people out of the few thousand on this list have clicked the link. Help reach this goal, then pass it on.
I’ll report back and let you know how it goes.
