Whether you should or not is not my business to say, but I might suggest that you reach out to Clay Rivers, the editor of ‘Our Human Family,’ a Medium publication that facilities dialogue and conversations about race, inequality, and marginalization.

While Clay is a black man, he publishes plenty of stories about race written by people who are not black.

I don’t want to put words in his mouth, so I won’t speculate as to what he would tell you, but I am sure he has valuable insight.
