Obviously you have not considered that there are black people and people of color WHO ARE THEMSELVES INTROVERTS, but have the additional life long experience of suffering serious discrimination (both overt and covert) because of RACE.

I swear, I am embarrassed at how completely ignorant most white people are about racism.

But then, I have about 40 years of education on the subject as well as about 65 years (of my 73) of observations.

Given that none of this has actually appeared in your schooling formal or informal, and even by simple observation (white people see about 1-10% of the racist acts that black people and people of color experience).

Black people experience it pretty much EVERY SINGLE G*D DAMNED DAY.

It's about time you actually started educating yourself on the subject. And keep your criticism to yourself UNTIL you've spent a good long time ACTUALLY LISTENING to what people say of THEIR experiences.

I swear TG I find it appalling how little white people on Medium know, much less understand.

But they haven't had to, see. That is one of their MAJOR PRIVILEGES.
