Thanks for the support and for voting with others in mind. It’s not about Dems winning, it’s about them making sure they take care of all of us. One thing that I know and I’ve know all my life is that White people will do what you see happening with the Trump administration. Good White people do nothing. Good White people see nothing. Good White people forget. Good White people turn bad. Good White people will side with White Supremacy quickly if it leads to power, position, or a bag of taxpayer dough. I’m sure every Black person has a story about White people doing what we see happening in our government now.

From White folks stealing our work, our plans, and our shine as we try to compete and climb the corporate ladder (the Black & Brown 2020 Candidates vs. the White 2020 Candidates -Election 2020), to Elizabeth Warren pretending she was an American Indian to claim minority status and to job preferences meant for us, to the cronyism and nepotism Trump exposed with Joe & Hunter Biden, to Trump and the totality of his reckless, ruthless, discriminatory Presidency. This is America and American politics. I don’t have any hope, I don’t see any hope, I just see more chips falling where they may.

I wish I could be optimistic, but I’ve lived Black for 47 years and counting. I’m jaded lol.
