So, the United States has a new president . I can’t say I’m surprised at all. I mentally kind of prepared myself months ago. I can’t ever remember seeing that much red on the map. I’m still in a tiny bit of shock because I thought things would go the other way more than likely, but here it is! Not sure how things will change, but I know it will be bad for melanated people.
We’ve been oppressed all this time. It’s just gonna be a more blatant type of energy going around. I mean we’ve seen it over the last year. People coming out thinking they can do and say whatever to people of color as if we didn’t build this place. As if ideas weren’t stolen from us. As if we asked to be here. As if we’re beneath them…….
Well now, we just have to stay strong and stay ready. That’s where my mind is. Nothing we can do about it now. This is what “America” wanted. I’m not surprised 😒
