Thank you so much. It’s something my friends and I using Facebook have experienced frequently which is why I left (in addition to White hate speech freely spewed and allowed).

Pretty sure that’s why most of Medium’s feature stories look the same and sound the same and why not many Blacks are featured (unless they speak “good” English). This is why I stopped reading them. Social media, another institution loaded with racism. This was a great, informative piece. It’s also sad because it means fewer people get to see my words. Yet another way to silence us.

And people have the nerve to ask us why we sound angry.
