The answer is no, and no. I have stopped trying. I just say what I have to say. Those who are working ob being better allies will get it. There are very few White people actually trying to get it. It’s why Blacks and POC can’t trust White people and it’s the reason we lump all White people together. There are so few good White people willing to speak up and out, we are left to fend for ourselves. White people in America haven’t changed in 400 years. They aren’t going to change in 2020. We know White people better than they know themselves.

White people will not change until they grow up emotionally. Their emotionally intelligence is terrible. They only see and empathize with themselves. They are wired that way. We are forced to live with the consequences of White privilege. Thank you for being and ally and trying. That’s all we can ask.
