3. Oh, dear lord.

Speaking as a white person, I'm horrified. I'm at least somewhat aware of the ongoing and consistent racism in the NFL (all sports, I'm sure) and those Republicans are wrong.

Make them live one year as a black person. If they can, live one year as an NFL player. Then tell us the NFL does too much.

I just got Black Like Me from the library, which i originally read in something like 1964. I'm looking forward to reading it again.

The one thing I know as a white person is that I have essentially no clue what it is like to be black. And that's despite having a few African American friends over the years. Not enough, I know.
