I look at the TV. A face flashes on the screen. I automatically have a feeling of disgust. Visceral. I Think for a moment. I Blink. It hits me
This must be how a racist feels. Utter disgust when they see POC.
My reaction to what I saw was not because of skin. It was the character, the hateful speech & actions. I don’t hate this person. I hate what they represent. Blink.
A racist would never give a chance or listen to disagree or understand or dare to see POC as human.
I am Thankful that’s a disgust I do not feel. Sad to know firsthand how it feels to be an object of that disgust.
