In light of recent events, I’ve been doing some personal introspection…and I can’t help but cringe at how some of the things I’ve said just in general conversation might’ve made my Black friends uncomfortable. Also recalling times when they may have tried to reach out in their own non-direct, fragility-friendly way and I didn’t really hear them; in that sense I definitely feel like I’ve failed in being a good friend and in providing an atmosphere where they feel they can talk about these things directly.

I’m not sure how to make up for it, and I hope someday I can… I do appreciate your article on this topic. Thank you for sharing this perspective!
