Can harm be repaired when it hasn't ended? Addressing Structural and Institutional Racism in the United States through the lens of Restorative Justice

"A system cannot fail those it was never built to protect." ~ W.E.B. DuBois~ This quote from DuBois has become especially poignant in the last two weeks with the non-indictments of two White police officers who murdered two Black men in the United States.  As a country that often heralds itself as being a beacon of democracy and one where the rule of law reigns supreme, the two cases that have been brought to light recently, that of Eric Garner and Michael Brown, have served to question these…See More

I'm sorry I won't internalize collective responsibility #MuslimApologies

Later in his speech, Obama praised a campaign launched by British Muslims called #notinmyname, which seeks to distance the acts of a few from what Islam preaches.  …
