Thank you Mohamed. I always try to be truthful with people, in particular immigrants because I don’t want others to be hurt the way we have been. There are so few good, true allies that it’s rare you’ll come across two handfuls in your lifetime. I see a small glimmer of hope, but then I think about the fact half of the White and non--Black POC people voted for Donald Trump, excusing his racism for money. Says it all for me. This is America. She’s shown us who she was so many times before. I believe her. You should to. Make sure you teach your children the truth of America so they’ll never be disappointed.
