Thank you and thank you speaking to my White commenters. This is going to be a hard pill to swallow, but the medicine will help heal them and us.

Often people are so offended and ready to be defensive for being called they won't even allow the message to penetrate their hearts and minds. Most people don't even understand the differences between being racist and prejudice. I don't have the patience to play around anymore. This is a matter of life and death for us, and if they are serious, they'd stop centering White people and non-Black people to focus on the issues at hand.

No other ethnic group has had the experiences of Black people in America, not even Native Americans. White people really need to reconcile with the fact they've destroyed people's lives for generations and atone. Being an asshole right now isn't the hill they want to die on in this moment. Trust me (lol).

Being called a racist is nothing compared to all the things Black folks endure in lifetime.
