Dear Pissed-Off White People and the Black and Brown People Who Love Them
Son of Baldwin

I’m a white person, but my anger is not at you. I’m old enough and well-travelled enough to have seen oppression in many forms, and the US, for all it’s wealth and privilege, is the cruelest culture I’ve ever seen. Every word you say is true. I don’t know how to change the minds of those who can’t hear it. Lord knows I’ve tried all my life. But I keep trying, and I applaud you for doing the same. Godspeed.
