Meeting ID: 632 068 0813
Teleconference: 1-301-715-8592

Racism has been a thorn in American society since before this country was formed and it continues to be a divisive force. How did Buddha’s Three Poisons – greed, hatred and delusion – play in the construction and continuation of white supremacy and racism? Might this understanding be helpful in their deconstruction? We will look at colonial Virginia to see how the concept of race, the institution of enslavement and the practice of racism were conditioned by the Three Poisons and how they underlie what has become contemporary racism.
