Me too …

Standard

Yesterday’s flood of Facebook statuses stating “me too” was sobering.  I saw several men post that they were surprised by how many women (and men) posted this status.

What surprised me was the number of strong, confident, and mature women who posted.

I guess it never occurred to me that these women could have found themselves in such a vulnerable position, yet I myself was once as well.

If we can so quickly accept that so many women have had negative, in some cases devastating, experiences, why can’t we (the white community) believe our sisters and brothers of color that they experience prejudice and racism regularly?

I don’t get to interpret the experience of another.
