You hit the nail on the head with this one. If talking about it is too much for their white fragility to take, then we couldn't possibly expect them to do what's right, and make systemic changes.

Too often, they place white tears above Black anguish. This is such a good read. It shows how white people truly feel terrified by talking about race. And, they care more about that fear than addressing the injustices we suffer on the daily baisis. The fact that she never heart of Emmett Till really tells the story of white privilege. Thanks so much for sharing your story and being a voice against racism in every form. 🌷
