When literally just showing up is enough

(11/13/17 6:42am)

Hello, average white Duke student. I see you’re scrolling through your Facebook newsfeed. Ah, a great choice considering I overheard you tell someone on the quad this morning that you’re “literally so busy.” Look at that! I see one of your friends has shared an article about Colin Kaepernick. Will you open and read it? No? Oh, you’ve just read the title, clicked “like,” and kept scrolling. Good. Great stuff. Pat yourself on the back for that. Congratulate yourself! You’ve been “woke” enough today. You’ve been a good enough white person today, right? Sure! Whatever helps you sleep at night.
