Don’t Hate Me Because I’m White

Julie Kendall,
Duncan, OK.

I feel stereotyped and judged just because I was born a white female and am considered a conservative, and am older. I didn’t choose my ethnicity any more than the next person. What’s this term “privileged” that I keep seeing posted everywhere in conjunction with being white? That’s kind of offensive. Do you know my story? Have you walked in my shoes? Do you know me as a person? Do you know my heart? Don’t judge and for sure don’t hate. I consider myself pretty selfless, empathetic, loving, giving, and kind. I strive to see ALL people as just…people. I want fairness. I’m against racial injustice. I want peace and love for America. How can I help? How can we get there?
