A Struggle I Will Never Understand

Sara Pardo,
Millers Creek, NC

I am a white woman. I occasionally hear a comment that is stereotypical or discriminatory against white people. However, I have never been pulled over because of my race. I have never been denied a job because of my race. I have never experienced institutionalized racism. I will never understand the struggle caused by racism on a personal level. I know that white privilege is real. I have and will continue to face personal challenges in my life, but these have not been and will not be because of the racism that is deeply rooted in our country.
