What is it like to have white friends, family, partners, co-workers, peers, bosses? Do they respect you? Do they stand up for you? Do they support your growth? Do they belittle your experiences of blackness? Do they ask the right questions to engage in meaningful dialogue? Do they have empathy within them for you?
If they don’t…and you still want them in your life… please speak up for yourself and gain courage in building intentional relationships. Humans struggle to communicate with one another – we have not been taught very well. Let’s practice! Reach out.
