Today on our "Race Matters in the Classroom" blog, "No Hay Peor Ciego: Unlearning to See" by Dr. Loida I. Martell-Otero, Professor of Constructive Theology at Palmer Theological Seminary of Eastern University.
"In many ways, teaching about racism and teaching anti-racist behavior is like the blind leading the blind. It means learning to overcome hundreds of years of an intentional socialization process. It means resisting and deconstructing social structures of power that coerce through social, religious, legal and violent means. Yet, for those of us committed to this work, there is also the acknowledgement that we can do no less if we are to survive and even thrive as a people, and particularly as a people of God."
