If several people of color — especially Black people — are upset about something that they perceive to be racist, and you come in with, “well I don’t see how this is at all about race,” THAT SHOULD BE THE POINT WHERE YOU STOP TALKING.

STOP.

TALKING.

Here’s the thing, though. I’m not saying that being white means that you’re wrong. I’m saying that being white puts you at a disadvantage at understanding the situation as it pertains to race.

“AH HA! What if a white person had said the same thing?!?!”

So if your first words are, “well I just don’t see…” then perhaps your first move should be listening to someone who can.
