Awesome interview. If you ever get the chance, see Andrés! He was headed to the airport from here to get to Florida ahead of Dorian. ❤️❤️❤️

“Simply punishing the broken—walking away from them or hiding them from sight—only ensures that they remain broken and we do, too. There is no wholeness outside our reciprocal humanity” (290).

Sad we even need this, but it‘s very, very good.

That moment when the last book you finished runs directly into the book you just started. The war on drugs is completely and entirely different for people of color than for white people. This is the third time I‘ve seen it said in print (that I recall). This is why I‘m angry about social injustices, among other reasons.

Accessible, straight-forward account of how race and racism permeate our society, and how to talk about it (especially if you're white). Digestible chapters with actionable suggestions. Recommend.

Just let that sink in for a minute. I followed the footnote to a 2011 Duke Univ. study‘s headline. It‘s white and Hispanic teenagers who have the highest rates of drug usage. But blacks are targeted and incarcerated for it at **much** higher rates. #whiterage #blacklivesmatter #socialjustice

This is my favorite book in the world: the Bible. I love this version because it highlights verses that reveal God‘s heart for the poor, the stranger, the widow, and the orphan. It shows how important it is to Him that they are treated right, and that we are part of making sure they are.
