I hope it lasts. As soon as the inauguration day comes and goes, White people will go back to worrying about the economy and getting back to normal. I already see it. And the bar is so low for White people. All Biden has to do is talk nice and White folks are comforted. No White people hardly had anything to say about how Biden disrespected Black civil rights leaders who have supported everyone from Jewish populations to Hispanics who have been handsomely rewarded by this current administration.

The sad thing is White people don’t understand their own racism, they can’t possibly grasp the POC anti-Blackness afoot. White people must lead antiracism, and they must stop rewarding POC and Black for engaging in anti-Blackness the same way the stand guard for antisemitism. All this is exhausting, but its also not our doing.
