You know, I keep saying the greatest listen from Michelle Obama's book Becoming is the importance of context. If you take the time to put everything in context, our responses to things would be a whole lot different and I want to believe, better. I, for one, had to check someone on YouTube who tried to claim that in Africa (an entire continent of 54 sovereign countries) does not consider interracial people as black, if you have a black parent. I was like, no ma'am, we don't do things here like y'all. Your first separation will be, you're American, and yes, that has some privilege attached to it. Context always matters. Enjoyed this.
