From our friend Tim Andrews, now resident in the United States:
If you wish to feel deep, soul crushing despair, please watch these two minutes from a recent NYC Community Education Council Meeting.
Short version: Screaming about how a white member had a brown baby on his lap was hurtful and racist and he needs to “read a book, read white fragility”
But do watch, as no explanation can adequately do this justice.
It's cued to the spot - two minutes will do you!
