This was so well written. It is something that I observe as well. White women are very good at this type of thing, playing the victim while pushing others down. It is defiantly something we need to be more aware of. Thank you for pointing it out!

Personally, I try to be an ally to everyone. We are all humans with feelings. The color of your skin doesn’t change that. Though I know there is always room for improvement. I’ll keep working on that!
