I really enjoyed this. I came to the came conclusion. I was tired of having my experiences Whitewashed and being questioned. I wrote about the stuff here on Medium and the comments were mindboggling. I made a decision to love my own because we understand the visible and invisible White rage, White gazes, White theft, and White injuries we endure simply for waking up daily. Until the world sees and treats Black people appropriately, we must do what we can to navigate the injuries caused by racial microaggressions. Thank you for sharing your story. I’m sorry you’ve had to endure all these injuries to simply enjoy your life. Stories like these aren’t told enough.
People need to see we aren’t exaggerating.
