Update #3 - Top 5 Learnings From Pre-Order Campaign: Week 3 Aug. 23, 2019

Hello, community, 

This week I will stick to just 5 points to give you time to pre-order if you haven't already!

1. Only 9 days remain in the campaign which ends on August 31st!   

After that, the book will be slightly more expensive with no bonuses available.  Please share the campaign if you have not generously done so already.  I still have a few people to thank in the acknowledgements section so the next 9 people to share the campaign on their social media will have their name mentioned in the book.  

2. I have been connecting with Leslie Gregory of Right To Health, which empowers and helps "people recognize racial inequities using a restorative and health perspective."  Leslie is asking our government to declare racism a national, public health crisis. Check out the petition here

3. New information for me: "In the 1960s, a group of black psychiatrists petitioned the American Psychiatric Association to add “extreme bigotry” to the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, citing the frenzied, often homicidal violence against civil rights activists. The APA rejected the petition, making the claim that “extreme” prejudice was so normative among American whites that it was more of a cultural phenomenon than an individual pathology." -Natasha Stovall.  You can read the full article here.

4.  Racial bias starts young: 

  • "By age five, Black and Hispanic children show no preference toward their own group compared to Whites. On the other hand, White kids remain strongly biased in favor of whiteness."
  • "By the start of kindergarten, “children begin to show many of the same implicit racial attitudes that adults in our culture hold. Children have already learned to associate some groups with higher status, or more positive value, than others.”  - 
  • -Andrew Grant-Thomas, Co-founder of EmbraceRace: Raising a Brave Generation.

    5. Last week's rash is all healed up.  The human body is remarkably resilient.  We are always healing.  

    Thank you to all for your tremendous support.  

    In solidarity for human rights, 

    Ali Psiuk 

    For the skimmers in the house: Only 9 days left to pre-order! Campaign ends August 31st.
