Can I Believe - - - - - Regarding White Fragility

Can I Believe

That they will Listen

and Really hear

After all

They are Three White Men

Upper - Middle - Class

Two, self-described Liberals

One Conservative


My words rapidly bring 

a heightened response

Of Course

Black People

Can be

Racist  (note:  see -    

http://georgesworldonthewater.blogspot.com/2018/12/can-black-people-be-racist.html  )

You will Not

get anywhere

calling me - Racist

Racism is an Issue

for you

Because

Your Wife - -  is Black


Will they Listen

at least to the beginning of

White Fragility  (note:   see -   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45ey4jgoxeU&t=528s  )

I don't know

Two of the Men

Speak - Strongly

Defensively

to my Prejudiced Ear

The Other

Quieter

Questioning Less

He said

He would watch the video

Can I Believe

That they will Listen

and Really hear

Tis a Question

Will they start watching the video


If they start

Will it resonate - within them?

I don't know.
