I can only imagine how exhausting the struggle for dignity and justice must be, but I want to say thank you for this piece. This an important and well-written piece. I can understand why so many try to fight the truth because I feel similar feelings of self-loathing when I think that I am contributing to continued indignities and miscarriages of justice. I just want to say that I can’t hear this sort of truth enough because the battle both within and without against the power of racism in this country is always worth fighting, no matter how I or anyone else feels about it. People are hurting and dying from the legacy of America’s original sin and owning our individual and collective responsibility for it ( as white people) is the only way it ever has a chance of ending. So again, thank you.
