Ron Clark: 'Where are the white people at? Don't be silent' A post from a local educator on recent high-profile fatal police shootings is spreading across social media. In the post, Ron Clark, co-founder of the Ron Clark Academy, says, "I see racism through a different view; I'm a white man who watches my students as they are treated with caution, disdain and misunderstanding." Clark goes on the implore white people to "be leaders in this movement to end the racism and misunderstandings." "If only African-Americans speak, I promise you, people only hear the "angry black people who are being ridiculous," he writes. "It takes white people to have the courage to speak up when you hear racism and let others know it's not acceptable." Clark made the post on his personal page just before 4 p.m. In less than four hours, it was liked more than 17,000 times and shared more than 13,000 times.
