SLIENCE EQUALS APPROVAL.

I once had a quest, who visited for the first time, place his feet on my coffee table. After the event started, a basketball game on TV began, he removed his feet from my table.

The next time he was invited to watch another game, he did it again.

At that point I said “Dude, please don’t put your feet on my coffee table”. His response was, ” You didn’t say nothing when I was over here before”.

That is when I learned, to a lot of people SILENCE IS APPROVAL. Staring, clearing your throat, does not deliver the message of disapproval.

Even tough the victims of the Buffalo Massacre, were black, white supremacy is a white American problem.

If you’re white and are upset about racist attacks on blacks and other minorities, or marginalized groups like the LGBTQ community, don’t tell them, tell your white neighbor or co-worker. Your Uncle Joe who watches Fox News.

They’re the ones that need to know how you feel. They’re the ones who need to know you disapprove of racism and bigotry. White people need to have this discussion among themselves.

Most of the terrorist acts committed in the United States were done by white men. That includes January 6th.

White people have to come up with a solution for the attacks., and then put into action. The first place to start is the ballot box.
