Thank you for this ❤. Many Black people feel the same you and I do. When you know better, you do better. Not forgiving is good for the trauma we incur. No healing, no change in behavior — no forgiveness. Our forgiveness is for the benefit of the White perpetrator, not us, the Black victims. So on that note…

I’m fresh out of forgiveness! Shame on the racist for asking for it.
