I’m white, not allowed to complain.

Believe it or not, I’ve seen many kinds of racial bias, including that directed towards white people. I’ve heard people tell me that I wouldn’t know of their struggles, so I wouldn’t be allowed to be any kind of a supporter. I’ve heard these same people tell me that there is no racism directed towards white people. You’re probably thinking the same thing. I feel that I have no way to defend myself in this argument, so I stay silent.
