Sadly, this is true. My dad used to say this to me all the time. He has some kind of psychic powers I suppose and could see right through them when I was younger, or perhaps he was just older and had lived in the world long enough to know they collectively will never change.

The more I live, especially in the era of Trump and the resurgence of overt White Nationalism, the more I see the covert ways Whites and those who pass don’t believe I’m human or believe I don’t belong. They prove to me time and time again no matter what we do, we will never be seen as equal to them. After 400 years they should atone, cut the checks for our pain and suffering collectively, and move forward. Thanks so much for reading.
