Scared to say the wrong thing

Grace Fry,
Whitesville, NY

p>As a white person I grew up not having to worry about getting pulled over or judged or treated differently just because of the color of my skin. As a white person growing up in a town without much diversity, I haven’t really talked to many people whose different race. As a white person I never know if I’m saying the wrong thing, or the offensive thing. As a white person I’m scared to say the wrong thing because I don’t want to come off as racist because I’m not, I’m just a person who doesn’t know what is ok and what isn’t ok to say because I haven’t been taught.
