White People continue to disappoint me

Erin O’Connell-Morse,

As a white woman, I am genuinely disappointed in my fellow white people. Acknowledging the terrible history of oppression of other races by white people in the past (and systemically still) doesn’t mean that anyone today is a bad person. Continuing to fight to keep systems of oppression in place, not educating themselves on racial equity issues and not even trying to listen and understand BIPOC stories does. I’m so disappointed that people are still actively racist, or don’t recognize how much they are missing out on by keeping their minds shut and their circles homogenous. I wish I could find a way to open their eyes/minds.
