Great job dear Ijeoma!
I´d like to translate your essay to portuguese! We´re having the same problem here in Brazil. Racism here is quite different but still kill our brothers in every 28 minutes and arrest our sister more than 500% since the drugwar politics started here. 
White people still think that our country lives in a racial democracry. Nothing more wrong than that idea. They say that we´re a mixed pot of culture, we´re all brown… but for the best job you have to be white, to walk without someone following you in a store has to be white, to smoke marijuana and be considered as a user has to be white otherwise you´re a drugdealer, a thief, a black person. 
We´re still fighting for our lives.
