Why are we so white?

During the month of June, when we were publishing a lot of stuff on Facebook about racial justice, Theresa wrote this post on why the communes have trouble keeping members that aren’t white.

There were, as you can see, a lot of comments. Here are some of them.

George Myers asked a question about why some forms of diversity seem to work in the communes, but race seems to be different. This got several responses.

There were a bunch more comments, including a long response from Gil Benmoshe which elicited a long response from Lyra TaChai.

Finally, there was a nuanced discussion between Cara Ziegel, Mary Hall, and Shayn Ephraim looking at beliefs, feelings, embodiment, and trauma in upholding white culture.
