Chile, now you KNOW I could have highlighted this entire piece. Thank you so much for saying this. I am bookmarking this essay and sharing it with every White person that needs to hear these words. I smiled the entire time I read this. I felt lighter. My load was lifted a little. It’s nice to see when allies and riders get it and can convey our hearts, wishes, feelings, thoughts and emotions to White people in ways I assume they can process the information better. No matter what we say, they see and hear anger.

It’s as dangerous as the police witg badges, power, and guns being afraid of us without knowing us.

White fears kills us. It snuffs out our potential and sends our kids from school to prison pipelines. It skips over our great resumes and does all the other stuff you noted. White fear could be a series. Hmmmm…..

Thank you, thank you, thank you Sis for loving us the way you do. Thank you and know that I love you fron the bottom of my heart. When outside opens up, we are getting together. ❤❤❤❤🙏🏼❤🙌🏾✊🏾
