…igger and more fundamental going on in the world. So are the people behind Brexit in Great Britain. They are not driving the change, they are reacting to the change. They are not showing the way forward, they are making desperate attempts to cling to the past, a past that is gone forever.
When strangers see me, they see a 6’6” 250 lb Black male that “looks like a bad dude”. They don’t see an American, a husband, a father. They don’t see my undergraduate and graduate degree. They don’t know that I haven’t been in a fight since 3rd grade. They don’t know that I have never owned a weapon. They don’t know that I have never and will never do any illicit drugs, even if they are made legal. There are many Americans that see me as a threat, not a human, not an American, but a THREAT and regardless of what I wear, how I act, what I say or don’t say, that threat remains.
