My white friend grew up in a very racist, segregated environment. My white friend has parents and family members who hold very racist views.
My white friend has a partner who holds very racist views. Who opposed adopting a child from Korea because “I don’t want one of them in the house.”
I’ve been in the house.
They’ve been in the house.
My white friend has never taken anti-racism training. Hasn’t attended diversity workshops. Doesn’t read any of the literature. But my white friend knows one thing: My experience is real.
