To the person or people who took the Black Lives Matter signs from our home on a recent night, we are hopeful that you believe in racial equity and couldn’t find your own signs so took ours for your yard. If not, and you were offended by them, we hope you will ask yourself why, because here’s the deal.

Most everything we whites have — and we assume you are white — was obtained somewhere along the line on the backs of Black people. We built the table, set the table, and occupy the table. It’s time we start acknowledging that and sharing our privilege.
