Piers is far from alone in his thinking, he is typical of a tremendous number of White people
Comfort, Without Apology.

Really interesting read. I think that for once it would be great for a black woman to speak on her experiences without anyone trying to claim “me too”. Sometimes we just need to be heard without our truths being explained away or devalued by another’s experience. To be close to a scenario does not mean you are directly affected or know what that feels like on a daily basis. For those who have mentioned interracial relationships, you are released from this prejudice every moment you’re not with your partner. You are given a level of respite. There are challenges felt by our female counterparts of different cultures/races and I don’t claim to know or understand them in its entirety. Therefore I choose to accept that that is their truth and allow them the opportunity to speak without judgement.
