LIFE 92: Learning to Talk About Racis
“…[White privilege is] also the power to weigh the need for protest or confrontation against the discomfort or inconvenience of speaking up. It’s getting to choose when and where you want to take a stand. It’s knowing that you and your humanity are safe.
And what a privilege that is.”
― Cory Collins

The problem is so much more than a couple of bad cops, the problem is that we have people that have to plan for exit strategies and emergency measures to jog down the street.
