I, Racist
John Metta

Well put. Thank you. I keep telling other white people that they need to realize what white privilege is, and so many of them take it personally. “Well, I’m not a racist!” No, it’s not about you, dear, special snowflake that you are. It’s about the treatment of PoC by white privilege. It’s about the language used that has substituted the words “thug” or “criminal” for the n-word. It’s about the SYSTEM that perpetuates Jim Crow and hides what it’s doing.

Keep on speaking, sir. I will keep on speaking too. Enough of us, and we can maybe fix this thing — or get further on the road to fixing it.
