  •  It's about white privilege (0+ / 0-)

    I don't feel guilty for what I never did. Most of my ancestors were in Europe and Great Britain while this slavery crap was going on.

    That's irrelevant to the fact that I have white privilege.

    And I do CARE about the results of what happened. About continued harm meted out to people, like the black guy who was dragged behind a truck because... he was black.

    I care about continued lack of opportunity.

    I have eyes that can see that I have had countless privileges because of my skin color. I swim in them. So did my parents and grandparents.

    Your post sounded like you didn't care -- maybe you do, but like sounding like you don't.

    Be good to each other. It matters.
