White women

White Women facing their racism

It’s scheduled from 6 to 8:30 p.m. tomorrow, Friday 03-01-19
at the venue called Threshold, 2717 Atwood Ave., Madison WI

Join us for an intimate interview and facilitated discussion with Sara Alvarado and Tanya Geisler: white women facing their racism.

We can’t do better or be better until we go within and get truthful about whiteness. We are offering you a real and raw look at our own journeys and a facilitated discussion to help you deepen into your anti-racism journey.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at: https://alvarado-geisler.eventbrite.com. Ticket fees are to offset hard costs and any profit will go to a local organization (to be determined soon).

Do you identify as white?

Guess that leaves out Elizabeth Warren and Rachel Dolezal.

The intentions of this exclusive event, which is for women who identify as white, is to provide a brave and reflective space for sharing our stories, challenging ourselves, and inspiring change as we put privilege into action in service of Black and Brown women and our desire for racial justice in the world.

We will use story, truth-telling, meditation, dance, mindfulness, and dialogue to encourage personal growth and a deeper commitment to our anti-racism work. Further discussion will focus on defining and acknowledging racism, whiteness as a social construct, and the white savior complex with the intention of addressing the fear, harm, and separation they cause.

Tanya Geisler’s website is: www.TanyaGeisler.com.
Sara Alvarado’s website is: www.SaraAlvarado.com.

Other special guests:

Lisa Baker will offer a grounding and reflective mindfulness practice.
Sarah Sadie will offer dance movement.
Journaling prompts from Desiree Lynn Adaway‘s “Dear Sister (not just cister)” deck.

Food and drink of some sort

There will be food and drink of some sort. More details available soon. Be comfy and bring a notebook.

There is limited seating.

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Racist white women only? So much for inclusion! Friendly tip: Bring your own bacon rinds and Miller High Life.

    Gee. We men are not allowed? How will we cope?
    Lessee, no men allowed. Check.
    No Women of Color allowed because they can’t be racist. Check.
    So the market is white females, admittedly racist who want to identify as such and they have to pay how much?
    Not many places this would fly.

          But I did advance, Jeff. Questions for you: Is the Monona Grove school district institutionally racist? Yes or No. Is the Madison Metropolitan School District institutionally racist? Yes or No.

        Anywho, being proactive and a people person interested in Bridges not Walls, I’ve…um…reached and sent an exploratory request to Alvarado and Geisler; the latter won’t even be there.

        My Dear (insert appropriately WOKE pronoun) Alvarado, Geisler, et al;

        I am not a “White Woman,” feel no “White Lefty Guilt,” (real, imagined, or manufactured), nor do I have racism to face.

        Your symposium does seem to have promise, though. Were I to IDENTIFY as a “White Woman,” if just from start to finish of the workshops, would my attendance be allowed?

        I already know how to use Women’s rest rooms, (I have four younger sisters) so that wouldn’t be a problem.

        If necessary, I’d be willing to secure me some of that there “White Lefty Guilt” if that would improve my chances.

        If so, do you know if it’s available at Amazon, ETSY, JCrew, or similar online outlets. If I mention your soirée, perhaps they’d offer a discount or coupon code; heck, even free shipping would be nice.

        Anywho, please get back to me, time is of the essence; hopefully I’ll see you there.

        Respectfully;

          Deflect to WAPO? Why? Because you got nothing. Kim let him out because he knew he was dying and that would look worse on the world stage. Trump is a stooge. That meeting was a waste of jet fuel and everyone knows it. Time is running out for da-rump and his merry band of criminals. PS. you’ll notice that I didn’t resort to the name calling and insults that you are so fond of using.

          “Deflect to WAPO? Why?”

          To show how pitiably pathetic Lefty’s become.

          “Because you got nothing.”

          Actually, I GOT Fred Wambier, the late Otto’s father.

          To wit:

          (bolds/caps mine throughout)
          “(Fred) Warmbier’s father had BLASTED OBAMA during a news conference at the time of his son’s release, when asked what more could have been done to bring him home before Donald Trump became president.

          “The question is, do I think the past (Hopey Changey) administration could have done more? I THINK THE RESULTS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES.

          And the coup de grâce kill shot by The Donald himself:

          President Trump: “ ‘THE RESULTS WOULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT‘ had Warmbier been brought home sooner.”

          Kim’s regime beats an American college student to death. Trump embraces Kim, gives him long-sought equal footing on the world stage with nothing in return. The Saudis grotesquely butcher a WaPo journalist, Trump embraces the new monarch. Trump is a Stooge with a capital S. All the other despots in the world see it and approve.

          Yer waxing outraged is tres cute!

          Funniest thing; that outrage was conspicuously AWOL when Hopey Changey broke out his kneepads and bent WAY over for the Brutal Regimes in Cuba & Iran which, the lucid will note, all the other despots in the world saw and approved.

          Funniest thing 2.0; Hopey Changey arms sales, DOUBLE those of the EVIL imperialist Bush the Younger, incuriously found their way to Brutal Regimes that ALL had one thing in common, other than their brutality.

          They were ALL Clintonista Slush Fund, I mean Clintonista Foundation, donors.

          Probably nothing to it, am I right…?

      Pettaway? She couldn’t close a shoe box AND doesn’t have the English skills to write an offer.

      Of course, the reason she couldn’t sell residential real estate would be RAYcism.

    Sounds like Red Guard struggle session, meets tent revival, meets crystal healing workshop; should be a blast.
    The shear narcissism and conceit of these people is staggering. Yes ladies, the blacks have been praying for deliverance from oppression by bourgeoise suburban dingbats since their enslavement. Seek absolution for your whiteness. Go forth and shower your beneficence upon them. Lead them to the promised land of meditation retreats, chai tea, and Bed, Bath & Beyond coupons.
    You could write a dissertation unpacking all the cringe inherent in this event. Start at Tacitus and the noble savage, move onto shoddily repackaged Christian confession and absolution, and end with the white man’s burden.
