Forward Thinking Thursdays: A Curated Reading List.

A NEW WEEKLY GROUP EVENT HERE ON RONOVAN WRITES.

A great link at the bottom that you will enjoy and learn from.

Here is the first post I’m sharing.

“The phrase “white supremacy” is often invoked in reference to the Ku Klux Klan or white nationalist extremism, rather than as a system of power with long historical roots. Crystal Marie Fleming, author of How to Be Less Stupid About Race: On Racism, White Supremacy and the Racial Divide…” (Excerpt from the article on Pocket.)

Beyond the KKK: Understanding White Supremacy as a System of Power

HERE IS THE NEW WEEKLY BLOGGER EVENT SHARE

It’s time to take an active role in our understanding of people. I’m not talking about one People, I’m talking about all People. All the flavors. Even peculiar flavors of Vanilla.

Up front, I want you to know that I do not consider there to be races, in the plural, but just one race, the Human Race. But there are what I call distinct People Groups. People Groups are those who share physical characteristics. There are subgroups of some People Groups, and yes, we want to learn about those, as all People Groups are important.

Some will immediately think of the issues the Black Community are, and have been, facing for innumerable years, and what we will learn. This is understandable. But I want to learn about all People Groups.

The more we know, the more current generations learn and know, the better we prepared we are to have intelligent and productive conversations. Why? The more we know about each other, about the troubles each face, or the advantages others have, the more we understand why People Groups look at other People Groups the way they do.

Although this site has posted poetry prompts leaning toward racial issues, and posted sites for learning and understanding, I believe we need to do something more, something real. Or as real as a blog can be. And hopefully useful to those who visit.

So, on Thursdays I want us to share one book, article, poem, song, album, site, event, or other on-topic sharing opportunities that will help us move forward with our thinking.

Share the link to what you have to share in the comments of the weekly post here. If you post something on your blog, copy it into the comments on the Thursday post on this site, or create a ping back in your own post back to the Forward Thinking Thursday post here on Ronovan Writes. I’ll come up with a logo image soon…ish.

The more that know… the more that share… the more that learn. And the more that understand.
