I Don’t Write About Racism Because I Hate White People

I’m from the Bronx, not far from where Amadou Diallo lived. I was stationed at Offutt Air Force Base, in Nebraska, surrounded by non-Black people, when the news report came on about his murder. They went on with their work; not entirely heartless people, but this was another world for them. Not me.

I get it.

Sucks, though to keep reminding people we matter, only to deal with ruffled feathers, like we’re some secret club only open to the cool kids.

Great read!

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
