Like today, we were outright victims of racism, abuse, and hatred, for no other reason but the color of our skin.
The murder of George Floyd was tragic and symbolic of an attitude that people of power and hatred feel free to express in today’s environment.
We have witnessed it not only in the murders but in the new YouTube phenomena dubbed “Karens” who openly find offense in Black men, women, and children doing mundane and everyday things like birdwatching, entering their buildings, golfing, selling water, cutting lawns, delivering a package, and the list goes on.
They fear nothing when they call the police, with the full intention of weaponizing them to quell their “feelings of discomfort, even with the knowledge that they will be outed, and probably lose their jobs.
Today’s hatred (racism) has a great place to grow.
