Getting white people to admit to their own racism is an uncomfortable and exhausting process. But there are those willing to do this necessary work, and you can find them in the corners of Reddit.

TIFU (Today I f*cked up) by calling my Mexican boyfriend a “support animal” and getting fired over it
