LIFE 92: Learning to Talk About Racis
“…[White privilege is] also the power to weigh the need for protest or confrontation against the discomfort or inconvenience of speaking up. It’s getting to choose when and where you want to take a stand. It’s knowing that you and your humanity are safe.
And what a privilege that is.”
― Cory Collins
When we understand that many people suffer and pay with their lives at the hands of structural and systemic racism we then develop the ability to actually deal with the problem.

The problem is so much more than a couple of bad cops, the problem is that we have people that have to plan for exit strategies and emergency measures to jog down the street.
