I don’t have a lot to say, being a middle aged white mom of three my life has been filled with white privilege.

I’ve been pulled over for speeding and let go with a warning.

I’ve acted crazy in a drunk stupor wondering the streets, only to be asked by police if I could make it home okay. I did.

I’ve been to tired to drive and stopped for a nap in a McDonald's parking lot only to be left alone to catch some shut eye.

I’ve never had to explain to my kids why it’s important for them to take extra precautions for their safety because of the color of their skin.

I cannot even begin to understand what it would feel like to be repressed by my skin color.

I do believe that all people, no matter their skin color should be treated fairly and with respect.

I can be a white ally against racism.

I will listen. I will support. I will sign petitions.

I will join. I will donate.

I will educate myself and others about racism.

I will protest. I will identify racism as it is happening.

I will use my privilege.

I will shop at black owned businesses.

I will follow the movements lead.

Here’s how we can help out.
