Still racist. Sorry. Working on it.

I grew up in a highly racist environment that I’m trying to work out of myself every day. It’s hard sometimes to listen to people of color talk about race without making their struggle about my whiteness. I fear that my desire to make black people feel listened to and loved is secretly a desire to make myself look like a good person more than it is a genuine longing for justice and compassion.
