I am white, I’m not racist

Because I am white, people believe I’m racist. But that’s not the case. In the news, it shows how white people (and police) are killing people who are not their race (mainly African-Americans). With all of this in the news, they automatically think that I am racist. I am from a city that is very diverse and the white population isn’t a vast majority. I actually enjoy the diversity in the city and I am very comfortable with different races. In fact, I have very few friends who are the same race as me. In my class at my school, the white population is not even a minority. I wish they would change their opinion on all white people are racist.
