Your White Privilege Is Showing

Dear White People…


Your White Privilege is Showing!

*

We need to keep talking.

*

This year has been beyond wacky, one where I am typically flummoxed by the grander notion of this country and most people living within its “walls”.

*

At this moment, I am finding great stillness in simply being alive. We have made it this far.

*

We were incited to act and use our voices this year. We were filled with passion and justice. We spoke up for love and fairness and simply what is right.

*

We got distracted. Too much happening all at once.

*

Racism is a white people problem. Simple. We created this divide when our ancestors came over to dominate and conquer.

*

It has always been our problem and always will be.

*

In my longing to be an ally, I want to keep talking with white people. I want to listen to everyone. Listen. Keep my mouth shut with excuses and listen.

*

In my quest to ignite conversation, we have come up with the “Your White Privilege is Showing” design. I will wear the shirt in hopes of inspiring conversation. I will place a sticker on my computer to do the same. I want to engage with white people. Acknowledge our part in what has happened in our country. Act.

*

I want to listen to minorities. LISTEN. Embody the word.

*

Listen: “to make an effort to hear something; be alert and ready to hear something.”

*

White people. We have done so much wrong and continue to do so, yet we can notice, acknowledge, stop, and act. We can do this. It is up to us. This race problem is the United States is our fault. It is up to us, now, to form a new narrative for what’s to come in this country.

*

LISTEN. ACT.
