As a white male in his 60s, I have many things I may need to apologize for. All my discarded plastic or all my contribution to climate change.
And then, there is my white privilege, which came with my birth. Yes, I was born a poor white male; however, I have earned more in my lifetime than many of my male African American peers, most who have worked much harder than me.
I am sorry for the system. Although I did not create it, I have silently benefitted from it.
And my apology for it will not right all the wrongs, not even just my wrongs.
