The Journal was designed to help white people ask themselves questions about race and privilege that are often not asked in public or private conversations. It allows people to explore the background of long held beliefs and guide the user to develop and clarify thoughts about questions that are presented. It is designed for individual reflection, as well as making an excellent guide for group discussions.

Only racists make them."
