Other than the Juarez baths on the border, this history was not news to me. It no longer makes me angry or energized, now it just makes me tired. I am tired of fighting against systems that are unjust and unwarranted. I am tired of "allies" that are so ill informed of the history of these systems or that think that all of this is long ago historical context that does not play out in today's society. How is it that so many of us are unaware of the realities of life for BIPOCs? I don't believe that it is mere ignorance but rather willful ignorance that allows complacency by people that are at best not affected by the struggles of others and at worst actively benefit from white supremacy and the legacies that those structures uphold.
