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.

    If I’m waking on the street and I see a white Roman in front of me, I cross the road.

    First of all most 9f this goes towards every male..and it is a law in America regardless of the state that any individual 17 and older is required to have identification at all times when in public..if a cop stops anyone it's an act of being detained and if a cop asks for Identification and you dont have it, it's called failure to identify..and they are required to take you in and identify you..

    Really sad. Not one of them have an appearance that they should be afraid to move in public.. but also some, such as the lady in the white t-shirt are bit exaggerated. I don't know of her experiences, but to be anxious in the cases she describes only show me that she needs help. It's sad that African Americans are educated like that. No matter the experiences one has, children need to make their own and be prejudice to white people.

    This is just so so sad 😭 For those people to have to think of all those things they have to do just to go on with their everyday lives it just shocking. As a white female obviously I have no idea how you must feel but I will say a prayer for each and everyone of you to feel safe. Change is coming please god and I pray and hope that the world will get better.

    My god as a white woman we have no idea how our lives are so easy! Being white does not give you the right to treat anyone so badly that they have to worry how they write an email, go for a run, what they wear! Enough!! This year has had enough horror let’s have something good come from it and be the start of embracing each other as equal members of the human race!!

    This is terrible... Hundreds of years of discrimination against many HUMANs can't just go away without deep healing and empathy of how they feel in their day-to-day lives.
