from the hardest working woman in the race bu$iness…
I woke up to receive this lovely email from ‘The Answer.’ No, not Allen Iverson. Rather…
from damali ayo
come on are YOU serious?
i’m not marketing myself- i’m trying to get a very real message to as many people as possible. if you know my work (and you must because you are on my email list) you know that i never let anything get in the way of challenging people or bursting their illusions about race.
does my approach work? hell yes it works. just ask the many many people who have worked with me. you might want to find that out before you dimsiss someone so completely.
the truth is that it is your kind of totally dimsissive negative painting of people who are working hard to make change that slows down progress.
you think people are going to hire me to kick their ass if i say “bring me to your school, i’m gonna be a real bitch and tell you that racism can never be fixed?” no. they’re not. what will happen is that i present them some serious solutions- that yes, are easy to do- racism has some very easy to do solutions that people have avoided for too long. it’s time to stop making the excuse that this work is so hard that we can never fix it.
reading your post, it seems like you want racism to stay around so you can complain about it.
check yourself, before you wreck us all.
