On-ramps and Lanes on the Racial Justice Freeway

  1. Finding our lane. Traffic moves most steadily when we find the lane that moves at the speed appropriate for our skill set and local context. This is where we will make the most productive contribution. Moving into a lane that isn’t right for us is a great way to cause a backup. Embedded within this analogy is the suggestion that all lanes have value. There are pros and cons to everything. Being in the fast lane doesn’t guarantee success, and being in the slow lane does not indicate a lack of progress.
