  1. My question is how much will White people give back? And what does giving back look like? I ask these questions because of what appears obvious to me. Giving back to causes (charities) that return tax benefits to you is not giving back it is benefiting twice. How you give back can be done in numerous ways; however, I caution that you give back in healthy ways like when churches conduct food drives give fresh vegetables and produce. Provide the standards that you live under not the status quo inferior methods you have grown accustomed to contributing. Step up and out boldly.
