The practice of white female superiority has been a subtle but brutal reality in my life. Many white women have made it clear that they believe they are prettier, smarter, and the "standard" of a "quality" woman. Making it even more clear that because of this, black women are not worthy of their friendship or support in any substantial way. Some white women are unknowingly benefiting from this social standard, and some women of color are unknowingly suffering, which is why I believe this discussion is important. But I realized in the making of this show that superiority of any kind creates separatism. I have without a doubt practiced celebrity superiority only to realize it creates the SAME pain I experience from white female superiority. It's more of the same in a different form. We all want to practice comparative superiority of some kind because we are all terrified to simply....be. We are ALL HUMAN no matter our gifts, skin colors, or economic status. I hope this show can illuminate for us all how we practice comparative superiority in some way through our many prejudices and/or the need to feel more special than someone else. Self evaluate after this one. The change starts within. I love you guys ❤️
This show was deep for me. One of my takeaways was that without anger in my fuel tank for the conversation, it was difficult for me to reach the thoughts I wanted to covey. This show taught me the need to learn HOW to reach and convey my deepest truth in a state of compassion. When I’m angry I can say it all, but the results are hardly ever positive. I realized my compassion was making me very careful and cautious at times so I couldn’t always get to the meat of the matter in my mind.
Learning to have thorough, deeply honest conversations, with compassion as the fuel instead of anger, is quite a skill set. But...I’m ready to learn how to get deeper with compassion around issues like these.
And Jane! Came with a messaggggge!
Meet us at the table tomorrow! #RedTableThoughts Red Table Talk #RedTableTalk
This Monday we will be talking about the issue of race through the lens of women with anti-racism activist Jane Elliott. When race is addressed it’s usually examined through the male experience. Very rarely do women have the opportunity to address this subject and express how we are affected as women in an open forum. This show only scratches the surface. There is sooooo much left to discuss...but it’s a start.
Race is always a tough subject to talk about. The purpose of this discussion is to simply gain more understanding.
Let’s be gentle. Let’s be compassionate and willing and open to understanding, even if we don’t agree. I love all my sisters from every background and my only desire is to deepen the love between us. I hope to see you at the table on Monday ❤️✨ Red Table Talk
Leah and I came to the table to lay it all down. The healing was real. Thank you Leah Remini ❤️
