Respectfully, it’s best to read the room tomorrow if you work with Black, mixed Black colleagues. Not all will want to speak about the verdict. For some, silence is part of their process. Dnt be that person and feel like it’s the first thing to discuss.
If you feel there’s an elephant in the room and you ask “are you ok?” And you hear “nope” and you ask “want to talk about it?” And you get “not now.” Then, walk that elephant out of the room. Respect that response..
This is no time to explain the feeling for you to better understand or empathize. You asking is enough, and that’s cool. Leave it be.
