#6 Pamela knows that it is her white privilege that her words are taken seriously by people
Though Pamela is happy that her words resonated with the common public and that it has gone viral but she is bothered that the same words have been spoken by colored peoples more than a multiple times but why is it that only her words are taken seriously.
#7 "I see society improving. People are willing to talk about it, engage, learn, and try to be better humans"
“I’ve always known that we [as a society] needed to work for more racial unity but I got an inside and unique perspective of what it’s like to live as a different race by being married to a black man,” Pamela explained.
Pamela believes that as a society, there is still hope and we can still untangle ourselves from systemic racism and discrimination in the country. “I see society improving. People are willing to talk about it, engage, learn, and try to be better humans. I think we are all trending upwards as a society, and I think that’s great.”
Though it still bothers her since it is the perspective of a white woman so it is going viral when “plenty of people of color have spoken to these issues many times.”
