I think its hard to talk about race because there is a fear that we will offend or misspeak- so we say nothing
I don’t think it’s hard to talk about race; I think it’s. H are for white folks to hear about race
* it’s hard for white folks
Q1. I think people struggle to grapple with the way race does, or does not, intersect with their own lives. Acknowledging truths around the impact of racism, for example, often means recognizing one's complicity in systems that perpetuate it.
I hear both sides. People saying race isn't an issue and others educating and showing that racial inequality does exist
People see race as a fraught topic and therefore would rather avoid it.
We've all been socialized that it's an uncomfortable topic; everyone in the U.S. identifies with at least one race group - which makes talking about race very personal
I think it's hard to talk about race because it's difficult to figure out solutions. It's taken 100s of years to get to the place we are today. There aren't easy answers to some of the deep rooted issues
The space isn't created to talk about race within our spheres of influence.
You can't discuss a problem until the right people recognize that it is a problem.
Want to understand; afraid to mess up and insult, disrespect, tax the other person

Votes! Campaign to sway popular opinion
get away from the use of standardized testing and use grades. the questions being asked are aimed at a specific population and are not inclusive to all
How do you recommend talking about/overcoming OCR guidelines that prevent us implementing some of these ideas?
I work at a CA community college - and our new funding formula provides additional funding for the success of low-income students, but ignores race. The chat today has reminded me that the funding formula is NOT a race-conscious policy.
It is not enough to collect data that are disaggregate by race and ethnicity there must be a commitment to analyze the data and then use the findings to change policies, practices and procedures at the institutional level. For government action, these analyzed data and findings could be used as evidence of the need to change laws and regulations.
Get a clear understanding on the ways systemic manifests itself
Because student success in higher education begins much earlier as far back as pre-K but certainly K-12, how do you think that the new policies promoting "parents' choice" have on the strategies and tactics discussed in today's webinar?
As I start figuring out what it looks like to embody equity as an operating principle, I'm learning that a change management approach may be the most influential - making the case for change, as much as we *shouldn't* have to, is necessary to build broad coalitions that will work to push when things get sticky or stuck. And part of the coalition building has to be about educating partners as well as ourselves about how pervasive systemic racism is and how much it has harmed our country as a whole and our communities individually.
