I’m so exhausted Mike. Why is it so hard for folks to do the right thing? We didn’t have to be here? I will never understand America. Certainly I’ll never trust it again, not that I had much trust in the first place. I’m never forgetting that people willfully allowed this to happen, supported racist who choose to stand firm in white supremacy and racism, as if they can somehow survive this mess better than we can.

The hardest thing for me to believe is that there are more bad White people than good ones. The sheer number of white male terrorists walking among us is devastating — scary. I can’t unsee it. I’m so afraid for my sons. You can’t begin to understand the horror Black mothers are feeling right now. We are helpless, defenseless, and angry that it took so long for people to see what was coming.
