"Race and racism is a reality that so many of us grow up learning to just deal with. But if we ever hope to move past it, it can't just be on people of color to deal with it. It's up to all of us - Black, white, everyone - no matter how well-meaning we think it might be to do the honest, uncomfortable work of rooting it out."

--Michelle Obama
