You’re welcome Grace and I’m sorry it’s a harsh message to give, but it’s one that’s over due. Too many times the message gets lost in misplaced emotions. I thank you for having the courage to continue.

The truth hurts sometimes, but it can make us better if we listen. While your feelings may hurt, trust me, racism hurts us much more than you’ll ever know. So I really appreciate you understanding the message. It needs to stated early and often. Decentering Whiteness is a matter of life and death for us. It’s a matter of public health to me. Thanks so much for reading.
