Fair. I can see the points but of course as a woman of color I can’t afford to be as forgiving. I just don’t have the energy to re-traumatize myself every time some uneducated white dude doesn’t want to deal with the world we actually live in vs. the narrative he’s comfortable with. To me, he’s racist until he proves otherwise.
