White Fear

Photo by: Sonia Coccimiglio

We do not fear walking on the sidewalk

We do not fear going to a public place

We do not fear that if we went missing, nobody would search for us

We do not fear the media misrepresenting us

We do not fear the police, they will keep us safe

We do not fear our language

We do not fear being chased with guns

We do not fear our environment

We do not fear being rejected based on our skin

We do not fear for our lives based on our skin

We do not FEAR

We are white

We are privileged. 

WE ARE A VERSATILE SPECIES. Get over it.

I stand against violence and acts of injustice against the black community that constantly struggle every day to stay safe and silent.

I am disgusted and disappointed.

You are not alone.

I am white.

Privileged. 

I am an ally

I can never understand what it means to be you,

What I can do

What WE can do

IS LEARN

I am your ally

I love and stand with all of you.
