This is what living while Black in America means

The clothes you wear out, whether or not to go for a run, where to travel, how to behave in public... Living while Black in America means second-guessing small, everyday decisions.

    I hear these truths and take responsibility for my part in perpetuating and being complicit in the stereotypes. I am white and unlearning my racism every day.

    Having to presenting yourself appropriately socially speaking isn’t uniquely a black experience. It’s asinine to assume these are uniquely black experiences, when they are HUMAN experiences charged with unlikely and statistically rare anxieties. Everyone should police themselves. If you don’t you’re most likely a selfish prick and not able to get anywhere in life.

    I must be living on another planet from earth because I thought slavery had ended and people could freely go about the business OMG I’m glad I don’t live in a country that suppress or stifle my existence!

    That this is a norm for our brothers & sisters of color, STILL, makes me angry & sad. Glad they shared their experiences, upset & angry that they are still having them. We need education & integration so we can all move forward, as one nation.

    We lack an understanding and awareness of what mental illness is, we are reluctant or ashamed to admit it, and mental illness is highly stigmatized. If we thought of mental illness like we do heart disease, then symptoms like depression would be like chest pain or anxiety would be like shortness of breath.

    Even though I taught in a mostly black areas some of their experiences never crossed my mind. God would help us see and realise the way they feel.

    This is awful and we need to make some big changes. I too feel very bad for my Black brothers and sisters who have to live with this kind of fear. It is disgraceful.

    Negara pencetus HAM tapi warganya sendiri selalu ketakutan dengan hak asasi sebagai manusia dalam hidupnya...
