@TheLoamDeranger: lol, so it seems like you're saying that race doesn't matter and shouldn't be seen. Unless it's white people without power, then it's really important and makes a difference? Your cards are showing...

I don't think anyone's saying that mountain biking should appeal to everyone. Just that it should be accessible to anyone who's interested in it, and a safe community for anyone to be a part of. It's not about pity. It about justice and equality.

@jbrown8777: hey I love that you and your colleagues were talking about racism. That's great. I believe that we need to talk about it openly. I can see how you got to your conclusion. How can we expect racism to be dismantled if we continue to look at and categorize people based on the colour of their skin? But it feels like you might have skipped a few steps. Unfortunately, we can't just start not seeing colour to dismantle racism. The key word there is "dismantle"; it's a built structure. A. system. Though our individual choices matter, it's much more than that. It'd be great if we could just skip to the not seeing colour and colour not mattering part. But we can't. If you're interested in learning more about how to go about solving the problem of racism, the "How To Be An Antiracist" book is a good place to start. You can sign up for an Audible trial and get the audiobook for free.

@jbrown8777: hey dude I'm really glad that you feel like you can be black and be a part of the community without experiencing racism. Sadly, your experience isn't universal. What you see as weak and emotional, I see as strong and emotional. We can have different, equally valid experiences of the same thing.

@bchampig: I think I see the good intention beneath your words and agree that we should strive for a world where we're healed of racism, and people can experience true equality. But the part that it sounds like you might be missing is how we're not there yet; racism still exists, and the colours of our skins still.make a big difference in our lives.To make the world equal for all, and dismantle racism, we need to see colour for what it is and everything it means.

Thanks for the article Brian & Wesley! I enjoyed it a bunch. This kind of content feels really important to me to read personally, and see in this community.

You are totally correct that decades (or more accurately, centuries) of housing and economic policies have negatively impacted non-White people, and limited their access to activities like mountain biking. But those housing and economic policies are harmful to non-White people because they are racist policies, and racism is very alive and well in the mountain biking community (even offline).
