LETTER: Your anti-racist effort
Dear Jayson Boyd,
Thank you, thank you for your word to us white people. It is a challenging process for us to see our white privilege. Like a chick hatching – pecking through a barrier, there is a shell of unawareness, then denial, defensiveness, then dawning and questioning…. You know the drill.
People are at all stages and many, sadly, will have no interest but many are interested and will do the work. I suspect you will get some blow back, I hate that, but it’s the reality.
I hope for others your column will be one more nudge to begin to look at what “white privilege” really means and how it plays out to the detriment of others.
White people have to speak to white people, and you are using your platform and talent to do that.
Again, I really appreciate your courage and your antiracist effort.
