Thank you so much for reading and understanding what I was trying to convey. I want to help make better allies, but I think if White people can read in real time what’s happening it will help them analyze how they can help improve race relations. We all have a role and this uprising will end some kind of way. When it’s all over, we have work to do. I want White people to make new bridges, not burn them. That’s why I wrote this piece. We cannot end racism or improve race relations without White people understanding the role they play in upholding White Supremacy. White people must also understanding the way they communicate with us matters. Perception is more important than intention in these times. Thanks so much for reading and please know I appreciate you taking the time to reflect. We need so much more of this.
