Today's lesson, Racism. If you see something written here that you’ve said or done, use it as an opportunity. Take it as a wake up call and make the decision to grow, change and be conscious of your own privilege. Remember, I am not a speaker for the entirety of a people.
What you think you are saying: I know they were racist, but you do not have to ruin their life over it. People make mistakes. In this case they just happened to make 50 of them in a row unapologetically. But still, the ends do not justify the means.
What you are actually saying: Racism is not important or damaging enough to matter.
