MLK Day – How to Be a Racial Transformer

I loved this chart from Colorlines on how to be a racial justice hero, “on MLK Day and all year long”.

And I’ll finish this very brief but hopefully thought-provoking MLK Day post with a classic Jay Smooth video: Ten OTHER Things Martin Luther King Said:

My favourite? Number 10:

“What is needed is a realization that power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice. And justice at it’s best is power correcting everything that stands against love.”

-Jarrah

    I liked the drawing thing from Colourlines because I think it’s a friendly way to suggest what people can do to end racism. And some of us sure do treat our smart phones like body parts, so glad that was included, lol.

      Ha. Thanks for commenting, Carla. Glad you enjoyed it. I thought it was a useful way to look at it – breaks it down and makes it seem simple, but hopefully not deceptively so.
