You know, I don’t really have an answer for what should be done other than a White power outage in an essay I wrote a few weeks ago. I feel that anything short of Whites relinquishing power, a formal, unified apology from local, state, and the federal government, institutional and systemic reforms (bottom up), and free mental/physical healthcare for Blacks to show our fathers America is making an effort to atone for its sins is worthless. We both know how pompous America is, so I’m not holding me breath. America thinks it can legislate racism away.

Racism is a mental health crisis for us. We’ve made all the recommendations we can. White America needs to make the next move. Our fathers are awaiting change.
