8. You are missing ONE word... IGNORANT White people will never see racism unless they experience it.
From a young age I've done everything I can to be an open, loving person. Trying to follow the example of Christ.
Imperfect person that I am, I've done or said things that were classically racist out of ignorance. HOWEVER, once enlightened to each mistake, I learned not to do that again, because I care about other people and don't want things I do to be hurtful in any way.
I thank God for my blessings knowing that the color of my skin doesn't mean I deserve them any more than any other person.
I do think, though that most white people don't understand the scope of white privilege and especially now when the top 1% have their fists around so much of the commonwealth, billions that they have been doled out for free because they already HAD money. HOW little breathing room that leaves the rest of us and how much more important it is to stand together, pray together, fight together for justice and peace for all.
