Thank so much LaVonne. More people should read the comments before reading to see how much trouble we have discussing race. It’s always funny. I get a kick out of them revealing themselves in the comments actually. It’s like putting sugar out for fire ants lol. White people really need to do a deep dive on themselves. We can’t move forward until White people get it. This is why I have so little hope. Too many White people enjoy their privilege, including the privilege of remaining ignorant.

Thank goodness for allies who do get it. If it weren’t for them, I’d just give up on race relations. Good allies give me hope.
