I think if they reformed their desire to quell my anger into a desire to quell the system that caused it, we’d all be better off.
Stop Condemning My Bitterness, Start Condemning The System

YES! How often I get told that I can’t absolutely prove that something I experienced was due to a bias, conscious or otherwise, is so frustrating.

I‘d love us to stop policing whether or not someone ‘feels’ they are experiencing discrimination and started paying attention to the fact that they

do. The fight for equality is more challenging when the discrimination becomes nuanced — no, we can’t know for sure that’s why the officer drove by, but the accumulation of similar reports stack up and we can’t know that it wasn’t because of your skin colour.
