I wish I could give this 10,000 claps. It’s spot on, to the point and undeniable. Black people catch hell coming and going, always tokens in the capitalism rat race. After three generations (myself, my parents, and my grandparents), not much has changed for Black people. Racism and capitalism has simply evolved into a new coat. After praying and waiting…nothing has changed. It will never change until this nation falls, and so I must wait for that.
I have no expectations anything will change. I’m glad you wrote this piece to bring that home! America is what it is….a hypocrite nation that will send troops to fight injustice in Brown countries while fighting its own brown people right here in the country.
It’s gratuitous cruely! It’s a sham. It’s a disgrace. It’s the truth, and it’s America!
