These are just a handful of issues that Black people face every single day. My purpose for writing this piece is not to whine and cry about how hard Black people have it, but to illustrate how racism impacts our lives. Everyday we have to maneuver around racism.
There is not one moment’s time that we’re allowed to forget that we’re Black.
