Hi Remarkl....I read your response a couple of times. I think I understand it. I definitely agree with this part: kindness often succeeds where rudeness fails.

But then if we think about things like the #MeToo movement, those victims could not afford to be "kind"--they had to bravely expose the problem, shine light on it, person by person, to chip at the big, sweeping history of wrongs.

Can the fight for racial equality be managed with kindness? Or are there so many wrongs that have piled up that Black people are right to be angry, impatient and fed up?

Just thinking out loud....

Sincerely, Alice
