Thank you for the simple acknowledgement. It actually is not anything to take lightly. I (a 45 year old Black Southern woman born and raised) often struggle to have such discussions with my White friends because they are so dismissive. I get tired of being told “I’m too sensitive” or “I’m misinterpreting what they meant” when it comes to subjects of race, gentrification, behavior, policing etc.
