Ijeoma Oluo: 'I am drowning in whiteness' | KUOW News and Information
About being uncomfortable as a white person: “… the least you can do is be uncomfortable. Be uncomfortable a lot. And if you are comfortable, take that as a sign that you need to make things more uncomfortable.” Definitely makes me uncomfortable

My liberal white male rage: What should I do about it? - Salon.com
Good mirror for my own thought patterns.
Reminds me of Bell Hooks, describing how the Patriarchy equals power with domination. Men are raised to dominate others. Those power fantasies are deeply implanted in patriarchal masculinity and even intoxicates genuine efforts to do the right thing.

What Does It Mean to Be White? von Robin DiAngelo. Bücher | Orell Füssli
What does it mean to be white in a society that proclaims race meaningless, yet is deeply divided by race? In the face of pervasive racial inequality and segregation, most white people cannot answer that question. In the second edition of this seminal text, Robin DiAngelo reveals the factors that make this question so difficult: mis-education about what racism is; ideologies such as individualism and colorblindness; segregation; and the belief that to be complicit in racism is to be an immoral person…

Deutschland Schwarz Weiss von Noah Sow. Bücher | Orell Füssli
In der Schule lernen wir, dass alle Menschen gleich seien. Dennoch leben wir mit konkreten Vorstellungen und Vorurteilen im Kopf. An vielen Beispielen verdeutlicht Noah Sow den Alltagsrassismus, der uns täglich begegnet. So erfährt der Leser etwa, wie selbst die UNICEF-Werbung sich rassistischer Klischees bedient, und warum es schlimmer ist, „Die weisse Massai“ zu Ende zu lesen als nicht zur Lichterkette zu gehen.
Rassismus zu bekämpfen heisst, ihn zunächst zu verstehen. Dieser Prozess wird für Angehörige der Mehrheitsgesellschaft nicht immer schmerzfrei vonstatten gehen können. Aber wie nicht zuletzt Noah Sows Buch deutlich macht – lohnen wird es sich allemal, und zwar für alle.

Angela Merkel's call for a burqa ban sets a disturbing precedent
From Laurie Penny: “Banning the burqa might make me feel less anxious. It would not, however, improve the lives of the women who actually wear it. That is what matters. My personal feelings as a white woman about how Muslim women choose to dress are, in fact, staggeringly unimportant.”
