One of the things I’ve noticed in my own adventure being a racial justice ally is that it’s often hard to find a shallow part of the justice water to wade into if you’re white and have questions, or care, about race in America.

Why the focus on white people? A couple of reasons.

One, we’ve relied on people of color alone for way too long to solve these problems. It’s definitely way past time for white people to get involved.

Two, folks have shared with me that it can feel burdensome, as a person of color, to always answer white folks’ questions. White people have an expectation that anyone should be happy to teach them, but sometimes that’s not true. Thus, I’m offering myself up as a starting point.
