Are You Wrong About Racism?

I have talked to many, many white people in the past week about racism.

Many of us are afraid to say something wrong, afraid to do something wrong . . . and we're afraid of staying silent as well. It seems like nothing we do is the right thing.

I get it.

On Tuesday, I was overcome with fear about whether I should #blackouttuesday on social media.

The black leaders I was seeing said, speak out, end the silence.

My white friends said, we need this gesture of community, even if it's just a gesture.
