I love that you are willing and wanting to share your failures. So important. Makes it more real and achievable for the regular ‘Joe’.
Tom-Scott Gordon
23:53:39
“AVERTABLE” ~ a parallel reality to emerge from LA. ..Where the wealthy sponsor a meal for the less endowed. Like a street school in the community food sector. —I’ve been appreciating this crossover space.

23:54:18
sorry, EVERYTABLE.
Sabrina

divesting from capitalist heteropatriarchal white supremacy.....
Raj K
23:57:28
yes.
Tom-Scott Gordon
23:58:14
Raj asks why I mention ET, —the street schools participate in delivering food to seniors, invalids, —practicing social justice.
Gayle Hanlon
24:04:06
are blind people racist?
Carl Rust
24:06:51
Ibram X Kendi says people are a mixture of racist and anti-racist because everyone has racist ideas and anti-racist ideas, and supports racist and anti-racist policies. It is a constant journey of becoming.
Gayle Hanlon
24:08:51
I remember the day it was brought to my attention that my friends were different than me. I never perceived them as anything other than friends.
Gayle Hanlon
24:10:47
and I don’t say that accurately, we are all different, that’s the way I was brought up, and being different was our commonality.
Tom-Scott Gordon
24:14:31
Being/becoming. Rust gets it. “Systemic” implicitly denotes institutionalization, eg. Mainstream Media. I refute the notion that those who create/perpetuate a problem can be tasked with resolving it. — (Here) most can’t imagine the notion of the LA ‘street school’ that was built on Ndindi’s vision.
monica truong
24:15:04
@Gayle, What happened that day that made you perceive your friends as different?
jennielea! McLeish

Bruno Gioia Sandler (he/his)
24:42:34
I thought we were group 6!
Lynne Lisa
24:43:52
Great point about the media!
Ayana's Collective
24:44:50
I totally agree about the term multiculturalism
Deb O'Rourke
24:48:14
Decolonization is where a lot of the work is in Canada. Colonization is ongoing with direct affection climate and human/Indigenous rights.
Raj K
24:48:14
I Agree with Ndindi. It's hard sometimes for white people to understand the important of racial and other differences when we live in a white supremacist society. We must actively be ANTI-RACIST, actively AMPLIFY voices of the historically oppressed, and.. for European-Americans, often ACTIVELY step down and cede power, cede space.....
Carl Rust
24:48:25
If you haven't checked it out - look at https://www.unschoolingschool.com/index.html -- we are promoting younger people and families assuming the power that they have and making their public education what they want it to be.
Lynne Lisa
24:48:47
Absolutely, Raj. As a white woman, I am very aware that I am part of the problem and want to step Out of the way.
Raj K
24:49:27
@Lynne.. no worries. =) I was responding to the comment about the "multiculturalism" perspective being okay.
Liz Campbell
24:49:46
Multiculturalrism is really just another form of compliance perpetuation epistemicide and uniqueness. I think we are slowly moving in the direction of creating and holding the space for different ways of knowing, being, and doing without sacrifice of uniqueness.
Peter Berg
24:50:22
I grew up in Harlem and am multi-racial. As I got older I started to realize the way I can move through society just because of how I look was different than my best friends who don’t look like me.
John Gundayao
24:54:46
Ndindi, what is your email?
Ayana's Collective
24:55:40
White supremacy is sadly just so engrained in our society that sometimes it is difficult to see those tendencies, practices, and mindsets that are around us and within us. Anti-racist work is vital work to a healthy and vibrant society for all.
Andrea Barrientos, PhD.
24:56:44
where is the school?
Lynne Lisa
24:57:00

Ellen Cool
24:59:22
Is it a public school within L.A. Unified?
Richard Fransham
25:01:02
Je’anna Clement has this article about decolonizing schools that is a nice succinct introduction.: https://www.unschoolingschool.com/decolonizing-school.html. It is posted on the Unschooling School website that is well worth checking out. Heather MacTaggart, the founder of Unschooling School will be giving a keynote talk later today: https://www.unschoolingschool.com
Terry Stafford
25:01:24
Though Mexicans weren’t immigrants in the Old West! They were indigenous.
Tom-Scott Gordon
25:02:00
Day1, NYC, I’m sitting at a coffee shop at @1:00am eavesdropping on two black professors from Columbia U. As I explained, both of my parents marched with MLK, they took the opportunity to reeducate me, saying: “Any man/woman who has time for color in the 1990’s -I have no time to share with them.” -I get it, I said timidly.
