I am white. I will never understand what oppression is like. I will never be subjected to systematic racism. I will never be gunned down simply for being alive. I will never fully understand.
But I WILL add my voice to those already crying out. I WILL stand with them. I WILL do everything I can to help change the world we live in.
I am white. But I will not be silent.
Then there is the boy you can never stop thinking about. Whenever you see his name, it trips you up. Even if it’s one that belongs to many others, even if he belongs to someone else.
You know he is a symbol of your weakness, your Kryptonite. How he rushes in like wildfire and burns through everything you worked so hard to build since he last left you in ashes.
