"Laughter Is Timeless
Imagination Has No Age
And Dreams Are Forever"
|White people:||We don't want any black people in our clubs, bars, parties, restaurants, schools, government, banks, neighborhoods, or offices|
|Black people:||Well fuck ya'll then. We can go start our own shit that's just for black people and nobody else.|
|White people:||Wow, excluding people based solely on their skin color? That's really racist and I am personally offended. How would you feel if we did that to you?|
Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels. Often, that’s a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don’t want to. But other things are harder. Try it: “I’m not going to edit your résumé, sweetie, because it’s not a priority.” “I don’t go to the doctor because my health is not a priority.” If these phrases don’t sit well, that’s the point. Changing our language reminds us that time is a choice. If we don’t like how we’re spending an hour, we can choose differently.
