I just want to take the opportunity to say that I am really enjoying your recent Voices columns with the thoughtful commentary on the issues raised by the Black Lives Matter movement and what it means for all of us.
As a white woman married to a Black man, I’ve had a front row seat on the issues that confront people that “stick out” in a crowd.
An enlightening experience for me has been visiting places where I was literally the only white person.
The shoe was on the other foot and I felt a profound sense of unease initially, and I imagined what it must be like to live that as your daily reality.
The sad part is that I have always been treated with far more respect and courtesy in those situations than is offered to many Black people in white-dominated cultures.
