I thought I was the only one feeling this way. I have felt this way for years, and other Blacks tell me I’m not seeing picture clearly. I saw it and I don’t want anymore of it. Every “extra” right White groups have is because of Black men and women. I never let myself forget it. Black Lives Matter is inclusive of all people who are Black. Anything else is trying to coopt that has an agenda, and Whiteness always has an agenda.
