White Boy Privilege

This poem by a 14-year-old young man from Atlanta has gone viral, so chances are you've already seen it elsewhere -- but if not, check it out. I think it's a powerful and honest statement from a very thoughtful eighth-grader.

1. Support BLM

Hello!
I was looking at whitehouse.gov and there was a petition to classify Black Lives Matter as a terrorist organization. I was surprised and hurt as a person of color to see this. So I made another petition to disregard the petition to classify Black Lives Matter as a terrorist organization. The link is: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/disregard-petition-formally-recognize-black-lives-matter-terrorist-organization
Please pass on we have 30 days to ban the petition so the White House will not have to respond!

5. That's Absurd

 

I don't agree with some of the people in BLM but there are not Muslim Jihadists. This is the right going too far.

3. That kid gets it!

I doubt that at that age, even if I had gotten it then, that I would have the courage to say what he did.
