Letter writer: Understanding Black Lives Matter

Graphic by Lori Deaton

Thank you for sharing the [commentary] by Robert White [“Black Lives Matter: Enough Is Enough,” Nov. 30, Xpress]. It really touched me.

As a white woman, I’m always striving to understand and sympathize with people of color. I thought White did a great job explaining his struggles and hopes for peace. I hope all of your readers read this, especially anyone who has a hard time relating to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Let’s start in Asheville and fill that gaping hole in our country he talks about. Let’s fill it with love.

Thank you,
