Thank You @NicoleEller - it is an important conversation for ALL of us to have.

I know I am guilty of "changing the topic" when conversations about race become uncomfortable. Though I identify as a proud ally of POC, getting called out on my ignorance on a topic regarding race can feel like a punch to the gut. This simply means that I need to re-evaulate my privilege and have difficult conversations about race more often so I can be a better ally and get over my "fear" of being called out. Thanks for sharing, @NicoleEller!
