Everyone should watch this talk from Erica Joy Baker.
Like a lot of people, I’ve been struggling with how to react to November’s election. It’s fine to make grand proclamations against the president-elect and those that support him, but I love Erica’s more practical advice to start with curiosity when you meet someone new. Learn about them, embrace their differences, and accept one another. Treat everyone as human beings, because that’s what we are.
Encourage everyone to embrace the differences… Encourage yourself, your family, your friends, and everyone to fight back against those who would have you hate, demean, and belittle people different from you… I want you to fight back against that with everything you have, because it is very important right now.
Go watch it right now, and share it with anyone you can.
