    “Would he have been better off if he’d just stopped? Probably not.”

    Are you out of your mind?

      No, I am not out of my mind. I’m trying to wrap my mind around what happened, rather than just assuming that I know what he was thinking and giving him a sentence before I hear all the facts.

      Clearly, in hindsight, he would have been better off if he had stopped. I’m talking about his potential thought process at the time. Obviously, I cannot know what he was thinking. All of this is simply speculation. I’m just trying to see it from a different point of view than my own as a white American.

      I know that a lot of people don’t like my opinion. I know that to some people, my opinion is an outrage and a betrayal. But I’m trying to do more than simply pay lip service to my dedication to anti-racism. In order to do that, I have to see things from a point of view that is hard for many to grasp.

      Thanks for commenting.
