Best of N.A.H. October 2016

On the 1st of each month, I share links to some of the best posts from my blog, Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian.

Here is a selected note from October 2016.

On “Inspirational” Comparisons Between Light and Darkness as Tools of Anti-Blackness

“I’m asking you to really think about this with me. I’m asking you to really consider how these often well-intentioned comparisons that equate light with good and darkness with evil can actually be in collusion with the perpetuation of white supremacy. I’m also asking you to think about alternative ways to encourage others that do not reinforce good-evil white is right power dynamics.”

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
