As a Black woman in America, racism is absolutely inescapable. It shows up in all the little places and all the big places and all the places you don't expect. Sometimes it's in a textbook. Sometimes it's in a purse grabbed as I walk by, sometimes it's in a question about my hair, my skin, if anyone believes we have even come close to solving issues of racism and discrimination, they're mistaken. If I'm afraid to go for a run, go buy a snack, go to sleep in my own bed behind my own locked door, we aren't finished working yet.
