Hi Iris,

Thanks for understanding the restorative justice piece of this thought. There is huge gap in race relations. Apologizing and make amends restores trust and shows you care. White people have work to do in this area if we’re ever going to move beyond just talking about racism. The entire nation has an issue with apologize to Black people and repairing or making amends for damages done to us. The list gets longer every year it’s delayed. Without restoration there can be no transformation. I’m not sure if the nation needs to fall for that to happen, but it sure seems that way.
