Say “White Supremacy;” Here’s Why

Equity Work is a safe way to describe the work I do in schools. In reality, though, my work is Anti-Oppression work. It is Anti-Racist work; it sees and dismantles White Supremacy in our classrooms, schools, and networks. These words make educators, funders, and leaders uncomfortable (at the very least) and scared, angry and defensive at the worst. But what happens if we stop using these words (or never start using them?) This article helps explain why we need to say WHITE SUPREMACY if we want to undo systemic racism in our schools and society.
