45-Year-Old White Woman Living In The South Asks A Black Man About Racism, Hears More Than She Expected
A Facebook post about a conversation between a black man and a white woman is going viral for all the right reasons.
On May 30, Caroline Crockett Brock, 45, told the Internet what she learned about racism from talking with her appliance repairman, Ernest Skelton. From derogatory language to random police stops, Ernest spilled everything about his day-to-day life in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The woman said it was the first time she had such a sincere talk about racism. She said it was “illuminating”. So, thinking there probably are more people who would appreciate learning about these eye-opening social dynamics, Caroline shared a rough transcript of their discussion on her Facebook account. And he was right. Over 220K people reacted to her story and more than 182K shared it, saying that educating ourselves and learning empathy is how we move forward as a society.
