Well said, all of it.

Couple of thoughts…

We had a speaker on racial justice who asked that we ask of ourselves, “there is no progress towards rights and freedom for all without sacrifice. What am I willing to sacrifice?”

Unfortunately, even progressive ish white people are mostly too sensitive to deal with hypotheticals or thought experiments, unwilling to give up even the slightest amount of comfort to simply hold in their mind the truth that “Police brutality in the US will not even begin to reduce until blond white boys are shot in the back by cops and die blood red on green suburban lawns.” Their scolding me for being “cruel” indicates that they have no clue that this is the reality for back people.

I stop to miau to cats.
