Un-packing Racism an interview with Rev. David Billings, D.Div.

Another outstanding article by IzzieJ from her blog BondFires,  offers factual evidence for many of my posts on culture and race.

In this post,  she interviews Rev. David Billings, a white anti-racist trainer.      Her questions are real and direct.  Rev.  Billings’ reponses are  thoughtful in offering another perspective to  deconstruct  race.  The more your reflect the more your thoughts converge with others.   Soon you find yourself saying the same things in different ways.   (This is one of the many reasons I enjoy blogging.)

 …..”I began to study the nature of “whiteness”—what it was and when and how, it was created. White culture thus was the way of life of a race-constructed society. White was taught as normal, universal and even transcendent.”  (taken from interview Rev.  Billings)
