I appreciate your courage in writing this. I am the white mother of a Black son. I studied Black history and intentionally went into African-American dominated situations as the only or one of the only White persons, to get a sense of what the opposite situation was like for them, starting when I was 16. So I know the courage it took for you to approach the topic. My one request is the you edit to say “Black people,” not “the blacks,” and “a Black person,” not “a Black.” We don’t day, “I am a White.”
