    Hello Ms.King

    Regarding Ellen’s experience, the comment that people should avoid saying "people of color" as it is offensive is interesting to me personally, because I was taught through anti-oppression workshops & trainings by "women of color" who demanded that "they" non-white women, be referred to as "women of color" at the feminist rape crisis center I worked at. Our staff was of all women yet very diverse in ethnicities, race, sexual orientation & gender identity. We were told to use the phrase "people of color" at work to describe all non-white folks, & that it was "OK-ish". I had asked my black co-worker if it was OK to say black specifically when making references to someone who was black, but that was part of the problem too "assuming" someone was black when they could be multi-racial so "women of color" was preferred. Now that was from 1997-2009 or so, & during that time after I left that organization, I opened then closed a 10 yr. private practice in psychotherapy, then had to go on disability & during this time took CEU’s where the term/phrase "people of color" African American & black were interchangeably used. Following closing my practice, I trained as a life/wellness coach from 2005-2016 & the phrase "people of color" was the term/phrase that was being taught there as well it being referred to as "culturally sensitive language". Recently, I’ve noticed the language in the media shift as I hear the terms/phrase "black & brown people" as of late. I think it’s important to distinguish the long history of racism & oppression that black people have faced & there is no more horrific view of this than the murder of George Floyd that puts this front & center. I can appreciate how saying "people of color" could blend & not differentiate when differentiation is absolutely needed. Thank you for sharing all of your important information with us. If someone like myself who is a white female "trained" in anti-oppression but not recently "trained" can be out of step with the progression of culturally accurate & current language then so many other people are genuinely clueless about this. THANK YOU ELLEN for just continuing to be YOU, you call all of us out to be better versions of ourselves to create a better vision for the present & future! In gratitude for
    The Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change!!

    I am a 53 year old white male and I am ashamed and stunned that some white people still do not understand what is going on. White people created this mess and we have to fix it. Thank you Dr. King!! Keep the faith. I will support you and others like you all the way

    Thank you Dr. King for the #OnlineProtest format which made a platform many that are unable to go into the streets because of COVID-19 and underlying health issues. We must continue to lean on our Lord and Saviors, Jesus Christ to cover our thoughts and steps moving forward. This is all of our fight, we must not stop this time we have to keep our boots on the ground until the job is done. We must demand change even if it means you do not stay with a political party it is a must to follow good an light not darkness an evil. Leading by example and what you do in the presence of your children because they see and soak up everything like a sponge. People need to be held accountable not just some all. This conversation can not stop. Everyone must commit to doing their part voting in federal, state and local elections and take a friend with you. Voter registration drives and continual education. We can no longer stand by an except silence it speaks volumes.

    Thank you Dr. King for your work. I am unable to attend protests on the streets because I have a chronic health condition. Thank you for creating a platform for those of us who stands with equality, justice system reforms, and fight against racism. #BlackLivesMatter
