I AM WHITE…

I AM WHITE

And I consider myself to be someone who understands and accepts everyone, regardless.

On saying this, I’m not even going to begin to insult black people by claiming that I understand what it’s like to have ‘white privilege’…
I don’t think you can ever truly understand that from the other side.
We can WANT to understand it though. That’s good right?
We can TRY to understand it? Better?

Not enough.

Quite simply, we have to refuse to accept our own privilege – since it is not given to all.
We have to be OUTRAGED every single time we see someone on the other side of that privilege.
We must SPEAK UP when that happens, every time or not at all, that’s the only way.
We must not, for one moment, watch what’s going on and stay quiet because THAT, that is white privilege.
➰➰➰➰We don’t have to.
We can get on with our lives.➰➰➰➰

⬆️That right there is the privilege we speak of.
Let it go with me now.
Let go of your privilege.
I’m losing followers every day that I post like this, but here’s the thing….If I choose not to – and just get on with my normal posts…
I AM PART OF THE PROBLEM.
Staying quiet is part of the privilege so here I am, standing up and screaming as loud as I CAN.
Who is with me?
