I know this comes from a good place but some of these look like they’re from  the 1950s. I don’t agree with “being presented with a person of color in a leadership role”=challenge to the idea of white authority, among others. I don’t find many of these examples wanting to bring people together. But if posting this makes you feel better then that’s all that matters.

Thank you (again) for posting. I’ve read some of these, but will check out the rest. Never heard the term misogynoir, so that’s first!

Amazing! Literally the very first response to this thread is an example of white fragility! i.e. “Not all white people think POC in positions of power is a challenge to white authority.”

Thank you for continuing the conversation and sharing resources. It can be uncomfortable, but it’s necessary!

The below graphic has also been circulating this week, and I found it helpful in getting conversations started.
