I CAN’T BREATHE It has taken me sometime to really gather what I wanted to say during this time, but here it goes… I have seen the anger and pain that is being expressed daily by my fellow brothers and sisters… First and foremost I want to say that I empathize with you, and I hear your cries for change. I am a mixed person of color, but have been able to reap the benefits of being white due to the color of my skin. I have lived my whole life through the eyes of a privileged white male in America. I was adopted at a young age by my mother who is white, I have a brother who is white, and have grown up in predominantly white communities. I cannot and will not ever fully understand the struggles that my Black friends, family, and teammates have ever had to face. I have never been racially profiled for the color of my skin, I have never been treated poorly by a police officer due to the color of my skin. I will never fully know what it is like to be Black in America.
