I’m responding to this because my piece is dedicated to people like you, who will never, ever be swayed from the privilege that continues to blind you from the truth.

I know that there will always be those of you that will remain in the cocoon of stereotypical fare — that helps propel the anger you feel when Black people dare to vocalize their experience in America — as Americans.

I’m glad that you don’t fall into that category of White people that are actually open to the idea of listening — as opposed to the accusatory stance that comes from the irritation that Black people like to play the victim — even when cops shoot to kill and our women are slammed to the ground with unnecessary force.

Stay exactly where you are — you’ve earned it.
