You know, I really feel like its a sacrifice and punishment for being born. It's not fair. I know I didn't do any of it, but I see how hard it is for them to process the two worlds, the unfairness. It's like fish scales have fallen off their eyes. America can't hide its racism and anti-Blackness anymore. We raise decent folks, and no matter what we do, they are still perceived as boogeymen. As a mother it's only right I apologize. I think it's a burden for all of us that we can unload. I don't know, I just feel sorry for them, and other Black parents struggling and sacrificing to make it and raise decent people acceptable in our society. Just a thought.
