It’s disconcerting to hear a white woman express how tired she is of hearing about systematic racism — especially when you have the privilege of just hearing about it — as opposed to experiencing it.

You’re the very definition of white privilege at its worst.

Racism doesn’t exist to make you miserable. It’s an institution that can’t be erased because too many people who look like you believe in it.

If you’re sick of hearing about it — then maybe you can bring more people of color into your circle and find out why they may actually be a lot more tired of hearing about racism than you will ever be.

Your exhaustion will turn to empathy. And depending on what kind of person you really are — empathy might evolve into action.
