I don’t profess to be a civil rights activist, nor particularly informed on this issue. I can’t pretend to know what it’s like to be Black or Brown or otherwise marginalized, or to have to fear for my life in even the most innocuous of interactions. The worst I’ve ever been is poor.

I’m ashamed. And I know that I’m not alone in feeling that way. After all, as we say at Benevity, We Are We.
Nothing that I have to say on racism hasn’t been said. But I’ve got something of a platform (even if it’s only for a few keen listeners) and I feel compelled to use it...
