Insight teacher Gina Sharpe is working to create a truly inclusive sangha. The place to start, she says, is facing the truth that even Buddhist communities aren’t free from the suffering caused by racism. Buddhist teacher Gina Sharpe once asked a student why she only attended meditation retreats that were specifically for people of color. If I’m the only black person in a room of ninety-nine white people, there’s only one thing that’s going to happen. ” Sharpe asked. Looking back, Sharpe pinpoints this as the moment when she “really got it. ” While the white Buddhist community may be very sweet, very well intentioned, that doesn’t change people’s visceral experience. Originally from Jamaica, Sharpe has a complex heritage—white, black, and Chinese. “I’m so assimilated that I’m more comfortable than many people of color in a white world,” she acknowledges. As a Buddhist practitioner in the Insight Meditation tradition, she never had any qualms about attending retreats that were otherwise all white, and for a long time she didn’t entirely grasp how difficult it was for many people of color. Yet the first time she led a people of color retreat, she noticed an unfamiliar feeling of relaxation. When she practiced with other people of color, the tension dropped away.
