The 100 Pound Puppy
Power dynamics are tricky for those who live in majority culture (and Western culture). We don't understand our own strength.
We're like a 100-pound puppy who assumes everyone around him is the same. He jumps on the 60-pound child, hoping to play, but mainly topples the kid to the ground and makes him cry.
We must learn awareness. Particularly awareness of our power and privilege.
Because, whether we believe it or not, it's real.
