Thank you for an informative article. I'm just as confused as I was before, but at least I understand that my confusion is appropriate to the subject. As one novelist I like has said, "If you're not confused, you're misinformed."
As a white cis able-bodied male American, I have inherited more privilege than anyone should have. That knowledge shames me, but what gives me real pain is to realize that my beautiful biracial children (who classify themselves by other terms) are not as safe as I am in this country.
