Oh you’re white that explains it

Spencer S.,
O’Fallon, MO.

My entire life growing up people have blamed almost every bad thing or complaint I’ve said on my race. This has made me upset my whole life because just because I’m white is shouldn’t explain anything about me even when I came out as transgender a friend of mine who actually really isn’t a friend anymore said to me its causes you’re white that explains it. This hit me hard because my race shouldn’t give me an excuse and I shouldn’t need any excuse this is who I am. When I told my friend this they said you’re just making your race corrupt. I will never forget this because until we all stop bleeding the same we are all the same and human. No race should give a reason or excuse to anything. I really hope that no one else has to hear that stereotype because no one has the right to say that kind of hateful stuff.
