I’m commenting because, as a white female writer, I despair over the aggressive and downright mean comments other white writers have left you in their attempt to safeguard their privilege and entitlement.
I don’t claim I’m exempt from privilege, but I try to be aware of it, which is really easy to do when other white writers make it so loud and plain. *grimaces*
I’m glad you walked out of that horrid talk, and I’m glad you were willing to write about the experience. I have nothing to offer than my support and encouragement in speaking out. Thank you. Thank you SO much.
