Mistakes can be the greatest teachers!

I love this Tumblr note from Franchesca Ramsey, aka hugely successful web content creator/entertainer/public commentator who centres discussions about racism in her work. In it, she gives a shoutout to the viral video that launched her career (“Shit white girls say… to Black girls”) and talks about a mistake she made in the video in regards to equating being Jewish to being white, and casual antisemitism.

It’s an honest mea culpa about learning and accountability, and I respect that! Read it in full HERE.

“Thanks again for rocking with me all these years & being brave enough to let me know when I fuck up. Here’s to creating more space to grow in the new year.”
