I wish you well in your journey. But those who consider talking about race “pulling the race card” do so to undermine the role racism plays in our lives and communities.

We all have personal responsibility for our lives, but systemic racism ensures we start less than white people. Check the statistics. Even the government acknowledges the harmful impacted of systemic inequality.

There are already enough people dismissing Black pain, and I’m not here for it.

Also being nonwhite does not guarantee you are versed in issues of race issues. But I appreciate your comment and taking the time to read my perspective.
