White: How do I help? No Answers.

Amanda Honigfort,
St. Louis, MO.

I am white. I am told again, and again, especially as a St. Louisan in light of Ferguson, that it takes all of us to fix our race problems, and that white people need to get involved too, but every time they stop there. I rarely get answers, but I’m afraid to ask what I should do because I don’t want to be seen as ignorant part of the problem. Those talking sound like they think the answer is obvious. Give me concrete answers and I’d love to help. What do you want me to do outside of treating everyone equally – like the humans they are? I just don’t know what to do.
