You Don’t Want An Honest Conversation

Sarah Carneal,
Centreville, VA.

We cannot have an honest conversation about race in this country. It is a fact that white people who bring it up will be called racist before the conversation even becomes honest. Benign things such as, “Where are you from?” are now seen as pejorative questions. It seems apparent to so many that people of color don’t want to have this conversation, they shut it down with phrases like ‘white privilege and ‘systemic racism’. It is clear that white people are not allowed to say anything at all about race.
