Simply acknowledging our own darkness is a step toward resolving it.
Not all darkness wants resolving. Much of it is mystery, perfectly fine.
Sometimes, however, we obfuscate: we cover up something that needs airing.
AirBnB recently had this happen. They are the online company that helps room-seekers find room-offerers to stay with when traveling. Some room-offerers use the AirBnB website to commit racism, for example saying “yes, we have a room” to prospective room-seekers, and then “no, we don’t” when the room-seeker turns out to be a person of color. The company had not meant for this to happen, but they had made it possible, even easy.
So what did they do? Ignore it? Blame it on the individual room-offerers?
No, they saw into the situation and began doing some high-level things to change it. Here is a great description of what they’re doing.
