“Who Are You?”

Anonymous

Who are you?

Who are you to tell me how to do my hair?

Who are you as a white person to tell me how to do my black person hair?

Who are you to tell me what I can and can’t say?

Who are you, a white person, to tell me I’m too white to say this or that as a person of color?

Who are you to say, “I could say all black people are bad but I don’t because that’s not true; therefore, you can’t say that all cops are bad because all of them aren’t- #backtheblue”?

Who are you, a white person, to even utter those uneducated words from your mouth? 

If you are white and are friends with people of color, it is your job to educate yourself about the current events surrounding racism.

It is your job to be educated and care for the culture of your friends instead of recklessly say racist remarks around them because you can’t relate. 

It’s not an excuse, don’t be racist and be educated, please.
