Really liked this piece. Great message and format that prompts us well-intentioned white girls to stop and listen. Stop making this about us. Stop expecting some sort of pat on the back for suddenly getting it. Speak up to those in our private circles. Start following black voices in our social media feeds to seek understanding not acceptance. Keep challenging the status quo in our own minds and those who are closest to us.

Thanks for sharing — this one hit home.
