All of this Ms. Denise,! All👏🏾of👏🏾this👏🏾!

Pretty astonishing how apathetic wilfully ignorant White people are about race. As you noted, time and time again White people get to determine what’s racist and what’s not. If they didnt “intend" to be racist then we should just excuse them and allow them to continue to be ignorant. No, no, no. Not anymore.

This sort of arrogance coupled with willful ignorance and apathy has led to the overtly racist mongoose in the White House. It’s why Meghan Markle was forced to leave her husband’s colonizing country, and it’s why nothing ever changes. Racism is a public health crisis, a pandemic, and we are unwell we cure this issue. You don’t get to harm us then gaslight us.
