So, B-BBEEE

Why B-BBEE? Pre ’94, white people had all the jobs. White people had everything. A lot of what was done to benefit white people, was to the detriment of people of colour. A lot of what happened back then, still benefits white people today, whether we like to admit it or not. Things like generational wealth, social capital, early childhood development, self sufficient parents, access to quality education, etc.

White Fragility

If we have to be honest, we all suffer from this to some extent. Even allies, ESPECIALLY allies, need to check ourselves often, and if a conversation is being derailed by white feelings, bring it back to what really matter.
