What continues to be shocking, even if it shouldn't be, is how recent there continues to be the atrocities happening. To hear that in 2016 there were medical test run on black boys is horrifying. It makes me wonder how this slides under the radar.
I am also thinking a lot about the intentionality of our government to weave these stories and create laws and structures that benefit white people and repress people of color. It pushes me into action, to not be part of the continued manipulation of the narrative.
