A community service group I volunteer with did anti-racism training, and I participated in it. I have to tell you, I was tremendously surprised at how big racism is. I absolutely knew it existed, but I was not at all aware of its size and how systemic it is, and I was not aware that I was unaware of that or that there was anything else to see. If that makes sense.

My hope is that other white people are waking up to just how big of an issue it is and that, now that they are (hopefully) aware of the size of it and how systemic it is, they will continue to see it for what it is and continue to protest and support BLM and other anti-racist groups. But I guess time will tell.
