There has been a debate on the topic of diversity and racism the past week or so, within the knitting community. Having had some experience on the matter from a professional point of view, as well as my own personal opinions, I did feel that I had a lot I wanted to say. But tonight, as I watched Dunderknits podcast, I found that she had said exactly the things I wanted and needed to say, and that I had nothing more I wanted to add in addition. It is so well thought out and so eloquent and informed, and you should all listen to what she has to say. But for those of you that haven’t been following the discussion or that are not quite sure what it is all about, there is a good recap over on Ravelry (membership needed) that will fill in a lot of the blanks for you.
Without further ado, I shall give the word to Caroline of Dunderknits:
Everybody should hear this and take it to heart. Each and every one of us.
