I wanna help but I’m scared.

Nichole Proctor,
Harriman, TN

Being white and living in the south can be scary. My husband and I carry white guilt. We know we’re privileged and we’re afraid to rock the boat. We believe in equality for all. We have raised our kids to use their white privilege in positive ways. But we are scared of being targeted by less enlightened people around us if we take a stand.
