I’ve realized my own white privilege for some time now. But being the white female half of an interracial marriage, I suddenly experience America in a new frightening way. My husband is a 6’4″ 300 lb black man. I have a plan worked out in my mind of how I can shield his body from police gunfire should I need to. I’m mourning the loss of my innocent and naive view of police in the USA.
