10 Unhelpful Things We Say About Race

1,705

Published on

These are the slides from my talk at the 2012 Wild Goose Festival West on race. There is a little bio, some scripture and then the 10 things people have said to me about race that are not helpful when talking about race. Please feel free to "liberate" as much as you way. Photos are from Flickr and used under CCLI, so please attribute if you use any of them.
