A White Girl's Thoughts on Acting White.

Featured Member Post

I do not know what it is like to be black and I do not know first hand about institutionalized racism.  I do not know what it is like to be anyone other than a white girl.  And maybe the beginning to understanding each other is to say, I don't know how to talk about this, but I want to.  And maybe that conversation is important to start even when it is awkward and you don't know what to say or why something bugs you. Even if you don't have the words, even if you don't want to offend, maybe it's time we look at how we talk about other races when we don't think anyone else is listening.
