CBC Diversity: Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist…
As proud members of the CBC Diversity Committee, we—Wendy Lamb and Dan Ehrenhaft—volunteered back in March to write a blog post, scheduled for this week. It was to be about unacknowledged, unconscious racism in YA. Our idea at the time was to make the blog post funny. Well, maybe not funny, but lighthearted. Sort of in the vein of the song “Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist” from Avenue Q. We wanted to laugh at the truth as a conversation starter.
That’s the future. Right now is no time for a joke.
What’s going on in our country is deadly, and dead serious.
We love this song, but this is no time to relax.
