Thanks for sharing your perspective. You sound like you feel like many Black and Native Indian people here in America. Our history books are always alive. We’ve always been second class citizens living in the shadows. People in other countries love to make assessments about how certain groups have no excuse to not be doing better than they are. Civil rights and human rights are guaranteed for a few. You’re getting a front row view of who the beneficiaries are.

Welcome to our world. You are seeing the overt demonstrations of how democracy really works for many of us. American exceptionalism is a lie.

I’m sorry you feel the way you do, and I’m sorry you had to learn the hard way the truth about what America really is like.
