We have the white comfort of not wanting to pay attention anymore. George Floyd is SOOOO 2020. We’ve moved on… except we haven’t. Violence is still perpetrated because of skin color. We can just afford to ignore it and call it “moving on.”
We just can’t help ourselves. We say the quiet parts out loud these days. I would like legislation passed banning WRT… White Replacement Theory
I will continue to post about our deep-seated racism as the story unfolds from Buffalo, NY. For us as whites, I am still stunned when a motive is made clear, I still have friends who say, “Well, it will be interesting to get the whole story.” So… I will still keep at this.

We have to understand that there are so many sins and strongholds we battle in life… and that INCLUDES racism. Racism isn’t eradicated, and it lurks near each of us.
As whites, we just don’t want to take the time to listen and learn. We’ll read what we agree with and stop. At best.
