I recently argued with my cousin about the events in Ferguson, Mo. She said I implied she was racist and claimed, “If you’re white, you’re wrong.” This letter is for every whiter person who feels polarized in a racially polarized debate. It doesn’t have to be that way.
When black people are protesting across America, they are not protesting against white people. Black communities are protesting systems of injustice and inequality. Responsibility isn’t that same as culpability.
