“Although it’s unsaid, white people still feel that they have ownership over us. A Black man speaking up about and for Black people gives them the same uncomfortable feeling that slavemakers once felt hearing the drums of the enslaved.”
Thank you for collectivizing an entire group of people and making a claim about how we, myself included, all feel. When I see someone of any color speaking up in an empowing way it doesn’t make me uncomfortable. It makes me feel that humanity can overcome anything. Hate is prevalent, yes, which makes human progress such a precious thing. Just because one is white does not mean they don’t understand that. We are a brotherhood and sisterhood of mankind.
