This is why I say the English language is White language and when we (Blacks) use it we’re literally talking White, not to mention, we’re not English and it’s not even our native tongue.

When I was really young my dad turned me onto how in America everything Black was bad and everything White was good. Black cats = bad luck. Black people= inferior. In the black= negative. Black ice, etc.

The English language is extremely racist and plants perceptions in White minds (and many non-Whites) that Black is bad, despite Black being associated with strength.
