I'm white so my race card is currently in a place of privilege and I respect that. More so, I intend to use it responsibly. Because as I said (and as I meant), I never fear having a law enforcement officer pull a gun on me over a traffic stop or a misunderstanding based on the color of my skin.

The bold part? That's the whole problem. See my previous post about pie.

Not sure how I insulted your friend but if you care to discuss that we can take it to PM because that appears to be personal and we don't need to pull this thread off-topic any further.

I almost had my 'race card' pulled many years ago. And if you remember Cheney, Schwerner and Goodman, the latter two had theirs pulled for good, in Mississippi. For supporting a black man and black-backed voter registration/desegregation drive.

And that's similar enough to today's issue - pointing out sins or illegalities perpetrated upon blacks - that I wince. I worked with black students to get a breakfast program started in their area schools; I started getting picked up for traffic violations. I had KKK flyers shoved under my door.

It doesn't take much, once you stand (or kneel) with the oppressed, to become oppressed yourself. Especially when the chief oppressor has a big mouth, vulgar opinions and fast fingers on a phone keyboard.

Truth. Today I got told to "stay in my own lane" for being bilingual and posting in a DACA support forum. But that, too, is OK. They can say that. It doesn't negate the need for allies or my right to speak an adopted language in order to assist. But it sure does give you some perspective.
