If the POLICE stops you, pull over as soon as you see the flashing lights. Dial 911. Tell dispatch that you are "in fear for your life". Ask for POLICE backup and request dispatch stay on the phone with you until you are safe. They are OUR POLICE! It is up to us to respectfully ensure that they are properly trained.

Does the notion of changing the ‘the water we all swim in’ offend or threaten you? ‘Whiteness’, ‘unexamined whiteness’ and ‘the water we all swim in’ are words and phrases that DiAngelo uses to refer to knowledge and understanding of our shared culture and history. In a manner similar to W.E.B Du Bois articulation of the ‘double consciousness‘ of black people as self-awareness that includes a consciousness of the ways that white people perceive persons of color, DiAngelo asks white people to embrace a higher level of self-consciousness.
