i don't know...

i don't know why i'm white
i don't know why i'm privileged

i don't know why i have food,
and others don't

i don't know why racism exists

i didn't know I was racist

i don't know why people hate

i don't know...

i don't understand poverty
i don't understand privilege

i don't know the answers to any of these burning questions...i simply don't know, but knowing begins by admitting my ignorance--that is the first step--and the rest, well, i don't know, but I will continue to ask.
