Thank you so much for acknowledging our plights Interculturalisticman. The institutional Whiteness was so evident on Sunday. The other thing that I didn’t mention because it deserves it’s own essay was how other Brown folks proudly work against us to uphold institutional Whiteness, joining the oppression bandwagon (i.e Carlos Ramos, the umpire). The hate comes from everywhere. We’re hated if we’re good, we’re hated if we’re bad. We’re hated for our looks, our body shapes, and even our hair. We are tired…so thank you for acknowledging us.
