Not really a lot to explain here. Growing up black in America is a far different experience than what white kids have to deal with, no matter how much we want to think otherwise. The Civil Rights Movement happened, and White America wants to think that racism is in the past, yet I would like to share a number of posts that demonstrate that racism is in fact alive and well in this country. It’s hidden. It’s ambiguous. It covers itself up with equality on paper but not in reality. And it’s our job as people who benefit from White Privilege (we’ll talk about that more in a later post) to acknowledge where there are problems and do what we can to fix them, following the lead of our Black brothers and sisters.
