As many of you know, I am a women’s basketball fan. Yesterday, Muffet McGraw, Carolyn Peck, Geno Auriemma, and Dawn Staley discussed racial injustice and inequality. The discussion was moderated by Angel Gray.
If you go to Hoopfeed.com, there is a brief excerpt from Carolyn Peck’s experience with racial profiling in Gainesville, FL. For those of you who don’t know, Gainesville is considered, by some, to be a liberal bastion within a rural conservative Trump loving region. It’s home to the University of Florida. But even in this supposedly open-minded city, there is an ugly part.
Give a listen to Coach Peck’s experience. It’s a short excerpt and won’t take up much of your time. After listening to it, I don’t think you’ll have further questions on what white privilege is.
Note, that this isn’t the first time I’ve been made aware of this kind policing. We need an overhaul of the system. We need to de-militarize our police forces. That trillion dollar tax cut for the wealthy white elite needs to be rescinded and that money spent for the people who created that wealth.
You’ve been fed bullshit from the white powerful elite and you’ve swallowed it over and over.
STOP EATING THE BULLSHIT!
