John Metta-I, Racist-Why I Don't Talk About Race With White People






"White people are in a position of power in this country because of racism. The question is: Are they brave enough to use that power to speak against the system that gave it to them?
So I'm asking you to help me. Notice this. Speak up. Don't let it slide. Don’t stand watching in silence. Help build a world where it never gets to the point where the Samaritan has to see someone bloodied and broken.

As for me, I will no longer be silent.

I’m going to try to speak kindly, and softly, but that’s gonna be hard. Because it’s getting harder and harder for me to think about the protection of White people’s feelings when White people don't seem to care at all about the loss of so many Black lives."  John Metta
