My sis escaped to Australia last year - hubs is dual citizen, tho never lived there,

And he's an engineer. Her job is portable. It's different but healthcare and education are covered. Their 11 years old adapted fast and is safe and happy. His first active shooter lockdown was in kindergarten here...

We have no options. It's distressing.

What Do We Want From White People?

One of the most consistently frustrating things about many interactions I’ve had with white allies is the constant state of nervousness, even fear, they are in when discussing anything related to race around any person of color. I often cannot help but roll my eyes when I see a white ally almost trembling, eyes panicking, as they attempt to get their words out. It’s like watching someone move through a minefield; you can just tell they are thinking through every possible step, worried constantly about the ground exploding underneath them. It’s annoying. But also who can blame them?
