1/ Talking to White Allies is exhausting me. I've spent my life understanding, managing, & processing whiteness & systemic bias. To succeed with my blackness, I had to do that. But, many Whites have just started thinking about these concepts in depth a few weeks ago. 2/ These conversations with the newly “woke” white folks feel like translating a PhD level dissertation to a kindergarten lesson plan. Necessary to meet folks (that want to learn) where they are, but, a mismatch just the same.
