Do your part white parents.

White parents please tell your white sons and daughters about Jordan Davis, Trayvon Martin, Renisha McBride, Andy Lopez and any and all young or old people of color killed by white people and white police. Yes white parents burden your sons and daughters with these issues and tell them how they can live a life that purposefully seeks to dismantle a racist socio-economic governing system known as white supremacy. Yes white parents enlighten your white children to their unearned privilege early and often. Remind them to be vigilant in regard to refusing to participate in the proliferation of the fatal killing machine of white supremacy disguised as United States capitalism. Black and brown parents have had to burden their children for hundreds of years with the reality that they are considered expendable and are targets in a system designed to eradicate anything other than white or not complying with white supremacy.
White parents stand up and say out loud in public spaces that you do not justify, qualify or agree with white supremacy. Show your children that it is RIGHT to declare your allegiance to people and not to systems and most specifically systems that oppress other humans.

White parents teach your children about the true history of the United States. Bless them with the truth and then teach them how to go out into this world and to smash this fatal white supremacist foundation. 

Do your part white parents. There are no more excuses. This is the world we live in. You are either dismantling white supremacy or you are enabling it.
