White Apathy and the Crucifixion | Know Justice, Know Peace: A Jesuit Antiracism Retreat

White Apathy and the Crucifixion | Know Justice, Know Peace: A Jesuit Antiracism Retreat

Grieving with others is not the only way we commit to solidarity. Becoming aware of one’s participation in the oppression of others, is another way of opening the eyes of the heart and deciding to be responsible. Brian Engelhart, SJ, describes the apathy White people often exercise when dealing with the realities of racism that affect Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), and finishes the third week of our “Know Justice, Know Peace: A Jesuit Antiracism Retreat” with one contemporary example, as well as with an invitation to get rid of indifference.
