Thank you.

What jumps out at me is that white people need to own, and just take care of the problem they created. It gives me a whole lot of room for contemplation.

I have always felt I was on the outside of the fight. I was trying to find a way to be allowed into the club of black activism. To find the secret way to fit in, be accepted, and trusted.

The whole time it just needed to be white activism.

I can see that the time and energy spent trying to be accepted is wasted time.

Fortunately my children understand this better than I do. What happens now is up to our children for the most part. They are the ones out in the streets now, and until this pandemic is over they will be there without me. I'm older than you, 66, and trying to be careful.

Thanks again for your consideration, and links. Time to shut up and read.

Old guy. Ex Democrat. Believer in karma. I’ll get mine! You’ll get yours!
