or two years, i volunteered with a peace and social justice, christian non -profit org . for a year and a half i was the ‘undoing racism’ and ‘undoing sexism’ trainer for the organization. i was that chick. that black chick. i had to quit.
so now 9 months after i left cpt , they have extended an invitation to the latest ‘undoing racism retreat workshop’ in chicago. god help me. goddess throw a girl a bone.
cause i need to take off my ‘native informant‘ hat. i could chose not to go. that is the sane option. the only problem is that my friends are going to be there and i dont know when i will see them next. i am like ribbons tied on a pole blowing in the wind.
the other option is to go to the workshop. and refuse to be a native informant. actually i was thinking of going and identifying as white.
then i could be ‘that white chick’.
