I am a white woman

And I am afraid

Some of you may say that I deserve to be afraid

That because I’m a white woman, I’ve had this wonderful, priviledged life where everything was given to me, everything was easy.

Does your desire to cause me fear make you better than those who caused you to feel fear?  Does it not make you the same as them?

I don’t want to be your enemy

I don’t want you to be mine

I want you to realize that there’s an implied “only” in your slogan and a silent, “but so do” in mine.
