This realization got me thinking about how steeped in colonialism I am. It’s hard because I have to acknowledge that the bias, racist attitudes and behaviour engrained in western society have influenced me. I like to think I’m free of racism but it isn’t possible, having been raised in colonialism, and anti-racist isn’t a label I can just slap on myself after I think I’ve done the work.
