I am white

I’m sharing this powerful message in the form of a poem by Mary Melange. May we continue to listen, learn, and grow in love.

I am white.

I don’t know what it’s like

To fear

Discrimination, bigotry, name-calling, death under a knee

I am white

Brought up in a white community

With white friends

I don’t know what it’s like

To feel how you feel

To live your existence

To have a history of constant oppression and special rules

Fighting, protesting for survival

I am white

I have been privileged

In ways I still don’t understand

My fear is different and now feels like nothing

I have nothing to fear

But you do, my friend, and for that my heart grieves

You are hurting and trying to speak

The words of your life

I am listening, humanity is listening

We hear the voices for equality, solidarity, justice

We acknowledge your pain

Pray for change, for acceptance among all brothers and sisters

I am white

and always on your side in love

I have loved…

  1. Thanks for sharing Mary’s poem. Another sister awakened to the truth of ‘The Matrix.’

  2. I felt this so deeply. It’s like I understood her sentiments on a another level. True brotherhood.
