How can individuals and groups, such as the Regrarians, recover from something like this?
As we embark on this “dark allies” journey, I wonder what will distinguish this effort from so many others. I scanned Medium titles tagged white fragility. @sistervegan’s Twitter reply is also in my mind: someone has told her that a threat of physical violence was issued against her by a member of the Regrarians group.
Both in the midst and in the aftermath of reacting, everyone has a need to save face.
What will distinguish us, I hope, is the effort to maintain everyone’s dignity without flinching from addressing stuff that is really messed up, even when it reveals that some of the messed-up-ness lives in me.
