Recap on Johnson

Just a few highlights from our discussion on Johnson:
  • Equal vs. Equitable
  • Cultural myth of fearing the unfamilar -- we are actually curious by nature but we are taught to fear the other.
  • Once we have the words, we can start to make the change
  • Privilege is something that is unearned and un-asked-for
  • "the luxury of obliviousness"
