“Segregate.” Cute word choice.

Segregation is structural unemployment, redlining, police brutality, what happened to Serena Williams during childbirth, and, in the past, Jim Crow.

Black people protecting our e.g. culinary, linguistic, and fashion traditions which we are punished for exercising at the same time White people profit from exercising, is not segregation.

Using the term “segregate” to implicitly equate actual violence against Black people to opportunity cost and the spoiling of a good time for White people is beyond absurd.
