I made a comment about the shock and grief I’d noticed amongst progressive Americans. I was quickly corrected by Imhotep Adisa, one of the African American elders hosting us at the Kheprw Institute in Indianapolis. He told me, ‘Yes, progressive Whites are in shock, but for Black folks this is business as usual. The oppression we’re experiencing since the election is nothing new.’
This is my first direct encounter with an African American community, my first taste of how vastly different the Black and White experience can be in this country.
Astute observation expressed by Mr. Adisa. Sounds like your American tour took you to the right places!
