I have experienced white guilt. When the BLM protests started, I was outraged like majority of the protestors. But, the more I followed along with the protests, I realized how little I have previously done to advocate for black lives, and even other minority lives. This video resonates with me, in a gut-shaking way. I feel like I was a closeted activist because I didn't want my family or friends I grew up with to view me differently than how I might have acted growing up. But this is utter BS (sorry for the language.) I am proud of my growth, and I should be proud of the fact that I am not okay with the mistreatment of minorities and am proud that I have a voice and a position to advocate for that. The guilt I have is discouraging, but what is encouraging is the realization I have from it and the hope for activism and support I am going to portray.
