White Privilege

I understand. I have seen it, have read it. But I have not experienced what it means to be black in this country. Founded on slavery, racism is deeply imbedded. It is different from the newly established hatred for the ones who arrive here from other countries, (Trump’s nastiness and hate made manifest)or even for the Native Americans who the white men slaughtered when we arrived on THEIR shore. Black education takes a back seat to white education. The schools where blacks go are not funded properly. They begin their lives at a disadvantage, and it continues on from there. Arrested for nothing, killed for no reason…
