This is a fine piece from Mr. Macias that will help contextualize a lot of what's going on for people who haven't been following the discussion closely, and even for those of us who have been. I want to thank Max for his labor in writing about his experiences, and acknowledge the mental load that falls heavily on BIPOC librarians and library staff.

Hi all,

Max Macias has written a blog post that details not only his personal experience as a POC throughout this discussion, but also provides a concise primer on the unreasonable standards our BIPOC friends are held to. He makes specific suggestions for moving forward, including strategies for OLA as an organization and for library directors and managers.

I recommend everyone following this discussion (and those new to the thread) give it a read.
