I promise, I'm not ignoring this blog, I've just been hopping all over my Facebook page! Some fellow adoptive mamas and I are doing a Facebook challenge where we post the things we are learning about in our study of white privilege. It turns out that posting every day, and following up on comments pretty much sucked every minute up! So, I'm killing two birds with one stone and retro actively posting them here too!
Almost every authority figure I have ever dealt with - principal,
doctor, postmaster, social worker, judge - has shared my race. This
didn't surprise me, rather it seemed pretty ordinary until I thought
about it. #mywhiteprivilege
