Social Transformation – part 2

This week Jeffrey continued our investigation of racism and buddhism with a review of basic concepts and definitions about racism. This was followed by a discussion of how the self is constructed by both social elements, e.g, racial identity, and personal experiences, e.g., experiences in our families. All of these elements are similarly conditioned and contribute to the illusion of “I” as a self, thus there really is no substantial dichotomy of “personal transformation” and “social transformation.”
