Reflection and Discussion
An exercise in practicing love beyond belief as the heart of compassion for ourselves, others, and the world.
Refer to the Today’s White Niggers blog series parts 1 through 4.
Reflect on these questions by yourself or gather an online or in-person group to reflect and discuss. An effective format for group reflection and discussion can be found in the Love Beyond Belief™ Small Groups section.
- Recall a time when you had a feeling or desire that made you feel uncomfortable.
- How did you try to hide the feeling or reveal it in an indirect way? How do feelings disclose themselves even when we try to hide them?
- What feelings were the immigrants trying to hide when they created blackface minstrel shows in America?
- Are whites who put on blackface today also trying to hide, demean, or ridicule their own feelings by trying to black-face them?
