(note there are ten pictures here, and usually every picture is worth a thousand words. that would make 10,000 words. but i don't think there are actually that many here. :D)
|In my thinking this is different nomenclature for what Unitarian Universalists call a "group covenant"|
|Some definitions of White Supremacy, as |
discovered in small group conversations
|Great definition that covers a lot. I've also heard: |
"Racism = prejudice + power."
|Getting to the causes of institutional perpetuation is a key to unraveling inherent/instrumental racial oppressions, in my mind.|
- Sense of urgency
- Quantity over quality
- Worship of the written word
- Only one right way
- Either/or thinking
- Power hoarding
- Fear of open conflict
- "I'm the only one"
- Progress is better
- Right to comfort

For MLK Interfaith Event at Heinz Chapel on the University of Pitt Campus
This is a critical time for justice – as much as ever, people's lives are on the line – in Pittsburgh, in Pennsylvania, the United States, and the world. And you are the young adults and the people who care, with energy, passion, and strong dreams about things that really matter. I pray each of us will firmly remember our time together today, on January 18, 2013, and hear this day call to you to bring the people in your life together for the issues that most make you come alive – be it racial equity, gender equity, a just distribution of wealth, safe streets, marriage rights, or any of scores of other issues that would benefit from our attention.
And as we do that, I beseech that you consider your passions more than your thoughts of duty to action that you've been told you should, or that you think you should be doing. Rev. Dr. Howard Thurman played an influential part in the ministry of Dr. King. He said, “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” May this be our year to more fully come alive, and bring others to life!
“Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
