This is a great look at why “black on black crime” is a non issue.
I’m so proud to know the author of this piece, Jennifer Sullivan. Her words were really hard to hear in 2016 in this piece on white privilege. But, I’m so glad I read them because it really was a turning point for me in my frame of thinking. I’m so thankful to people around me (both physically and digitally) who continue to challenge my thinking and ask me to do better.
