Few Words

Black Lives Matter.

Blue Lives Matter.

Driving while black.

The Talk.

Racism.

Privilege.

Reverse racism.

Allyhood.

Protests.

Snipers.

What could I possibly add to all the words, emotions, even blood that have spilled and been spilled this week?

I see the racism within me.  I see my own privilege.  I'm afraid for the future.  I'm angry about the present.   I don't think all the easy talk of kindness, love, and unity is the answer.

But I don't know what is.
