For Those Concerned About Property Damage at the Protests

For those of you – especially those of you who, like me, enjoy the privilege of white skin – who are concerned about business owners and property damage as a result of the protests over generations of police brutality, suppression of minorities, and extrajudicial murder, and who have taken to social media to express that concern, I have a suggestion.

Why don’t you pick one of those businesses and fundraise for them, to make up whatever their insurance won’t cover, and rebuild their dream? Y’all all seem to so concerned, I’m sure finding some concrete action to take, and putting some skin or at least money in the game, will make you feel better, and give you the satisfaction of having seen a problem and done something about it instead of just complaining that somebody ought to.

Just, you know, a thought.
