"Gang" laws create a separate system of justice for communities of color, with criminal charges that don’t require actual wrongdoing, and lead to longer sentences, restricted fundamental freedoms, and a tilted playing field in the courtroom.

, Day -1 Him: "Do you think you better than me?" Me: "Do you think I think I'm better than you?" Him: "Not sure." Me: "Well. I don't think that. But I wish it was obvious." Him: *shrugs* Sigh. Decided to stop talking. And try my best to show instead of tell.

What causes burnout besides unmanageable workloads: - Feeling like you have no control. - Not getting acknowledged. - Having poor relationships with coworkers. - Being treated unfairly by your boss. - Having different values than your employer.

Lynn Sanford describes important distinction btw guilt & shame. Guilt: I am a good person, but I made a mistake & caused harm. Can work to repair situation. Make amends. Shame is perception that one IS the problem. Shame is internalized & undermines growth & recovery.

8yo: Are you aware stores can sell marijuana now? Me: Yes, laws change. 8yo: Don’t you think it’s messed up that it was a crime and people went to jail and now it’s just like whatevs? Me: I do. Law is... 8yo: Laws shouldn’t be random rules if you want people to follow them.

It’s often an active choice to avoid teaching the historic & ongoing realities of racism — out of fear that this factual reality will ‘alienate’ those who benefit from those systems. This exhibition of moral cowardice fuels the continuance racist systems.

Been thinking a lot about the severely uncomfortable (likely unconscious) reaction many White & Asian folks have to the proposition of being actively anti-racist. Every person should want that label attached to their reputation. Get over that hurdle of discomfort & get to work.

I’m learning more and more with each patient interaction that mastery of language and human connection is just as important of a “procedure” as clinical skills. Things can get heavy fast, and it’s critical to know how to navigate these conversations.

Instead of writing "I'm sorry" in professional emails, I'm going to use: "Thank you for your patience." "Thank you for your understanding." "Thank you for your flexibility."

Today's devotion: The epidemic isn't just about the so-called " generation". It's also about the intergenerational trauma that our kids are exposed to in our cities. All of our kids deserve to grow up without fear of a bullet.

I’m increasingly hearing some of our staunchest anti-gun violence advocates concede to fatigue in one manner or another. When the people we count on to fight are exhausted, we often suggest self-care, but that puts the onus on them. What should the rest of us be doing for them?

I don't know who needs to hear this, but you don't need to hide your excitement and passion to seem 'professional'.

Are healthcare professionals immune from mental health issues? No. But do they at least all feel they can safely talk about them without professional repercussions? Also no.

"Do what you love & you'll never work a day in your life." Not quite. You can do what you love and still be tired as hell. 🗣 Taking a break from doing the work you love doesn't mean you love it any less.

I am White. I have studied racism for over 2 decades. I still can't claim to fully understand its impacts. If you are White, you have a lot to learn about racism, even if your spouse/children are non-White, even if you have read several books, even if your best friend is Black.

- People: "Be a strong woman" "Speak up" "Stand your ground" Woman: *Becomes strong* *Speaks up* *Stands her ground* - Also people: "Why are you so difficult?" "Relax" "You're too unpleasant"
