Calling out racism is not “name calling”

I really appreciated this podcast, but was deeply uncomfortable with the perspective shared on the most recent episode. You have a responsibility to educate yourself on structural oppression with a platform like this. When someone calls out racist (sexist, ableist, etc.) actions or beliefs, this is not name calling. We live in a cultural stew of these oppressive ideas. Of course we’ll internalize them. When this is brought to your attention, the point is to prioritize the lives of marginalized people and not your own hurt feelings. Learn to take feedback with grace and humility. I’ll be looking to other educators around polyvagal theory and somatic exercises to do this work.
