Recently I’ve had two personal experiences – one with my step daughter and the other with my daughter – that challenged me to reconsider my own ways of understanding and speaking that don’t measure up to the new requirements for anti-racist behavior and building an anti-racist world. These experiences remind me that younger generations bring to the plate new eyes, new sensibilities, and new understandings of racism that is on me (and older people) to soberly and self critically consider. I find it easier to do that if I think of myself as a work in progress and not too old a dog to learn anew.
