How I Talk to White People About Racism
Clay Rivers

I find this to be a difficult conversation because I am seen as a white man and allowed to have only one opinion. Then I am lectured at and spoken to like I am completely ignorant. It is also difficult because it is a very personal topic, and it is hard to respond without revealing too much information about my own life. Yes, I have the privilege of the majority complexion, but we are not breathing sticks of crayola crayons. The eases and hardships of my life can’t be determined by the color of my skin anymore than a black person should be assumed to be poor and uneducated.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
