AMHERST - White people have learned a series of reactions to racism, progressing from denial to confusion to concluding that the victim must have done something wrong, Barbara Love told about 130 people at the Unitarian Society of Amherst.
Love, professor emeritus of social justice at the University of Massachusetts School of Education, described how she said whites often react: "If someone says it happened, deny it. If that fails, convince yourself that it was not wrong. "If it intrudes into your consciousness too much, you are supposed to be confused. If that fails, then conclude that the victim of racism "must have done something wrong."
Love's 90-minute talk, titled "Love, Care and Racism," was part of a series organized by the citizens group Coming Together: Understanding Racism, Working for Justice, Building Connections in Amherst.
A former chairwoman of the Amherst-Pelham Regional School Committee, Love said there are some causes for celebration as Amherst continues to confront incidents of racist graffiti that have roiled the campuses of both the high school and UMass during the past year. Talking about it is part of a necessary healing process if the goal is to eliminate racism, she said.
Paraphrasing what her father used to tell her, Love said of the situation in Amherst, "We're not where we aim to be, we're not where we're going to be, but we're not where we were."
Amherst is "daring to try to have a town without racism," said Love. Her reaction to that is simply, "Thank you."
Love's preferred term for what she used to call "people of color" is now "people of the global majority."
As a member of the global majority, Love said she is constantly confronted with the indignities that come with being treated with less respect than white people, and often not even being seen when mingling with them. These "micro-aggressions" include having airline attendants pass over her when serving meals, store clerks assuming that items are too expensive for her, or having people cut through a line right where she is standing, she related.
Recalling a recent shopping incident in which a clerk told her something was not on sale, Love said she responded, "I didn't ask if it was on sale, darling, I asked if it was for sale."
...
"We are waiting for the people who are nearest and dearest to us to do something about it," said Love.

Civil rights activist Barbara J. Love will headline the 2012 John Hope Franklin Reconciliation Dinner, beginning with a reception at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Greenwood Cultural Center, 322 N. Greenwood Ave.
In a telephone interview, Love said she will talk about the "necessity of healing" hurts and wounds carried across long periods of time. Her methods, she said, concentrate on dialogue among individuals and groups.
Love said she draws on examples including 16th- and 17th-century Europe, Ireland, Sri Lanka and Uganda.
"I am passionate that we as humans have a world that works well for us," she said.
This will be the fourth Franklin Dinner, sponsored by the John Hope Franklin Center for Reconciliation as part of its effort to foster community discussion on race and diversity.
