Absolutely. Your article did an amazing job of exploring white silence. Many do not understand that when you remain silent you are an enabler. I can see it in the change of focus in the media, the fewer and fewer BLM posts, and I sense that white silence will overtake the narrative, pushing our issues back into the margins of progressive dialogue. We cannot excuse their “conflict aversion”. It’s absolutely accurate to describe their behaviors as cowardly.
