Writing about struggles to end racism and white supremacy, the autho reminds us that "no one is born a racist"--Everyone makes a choice. But the pervasiveness of racism in society - the "worship of whiteness"--devalues us all. To "teach community" means, for example to work against the effects of such socialization and to resist even the subtle ways in which racism is reinforced.
