I am white, I am privileged and I am sorry.

Posted on Mon, Jan 30, 2017 at 12:00 PM

I feel intense fear and sadness for the hatred and discrimination other people face. Seeing the bans in the US, the decriminalization of family violence in Russia. The future seems dismal and dark. Here I am, all shiny and white. I want to be your ally. I want you to know I don't want you to face a moment of hatred. I stand for you, with you, beside you. I do not give a shit about your religion, what you look like. I care if you are a good person. Kind, loving and that you make our country better. I care that you are inclusive. That you respect those around you. That you share your story. I am sorry I don't fully understand. I am sorry because I am white I just don't get it. But please know I try and please know from the bottom of my heart, I want equality. —Shiny
