“Most black people have been told practically since the womb that they must be twice as good to get half as much as anybody white...” theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/… by @jemelehill
“They have also been conditioned to believe that maintaining the moral high ground and being a bigger person is the only way to defeat racism. That often means suppressing natural human emotions that could communicate racism’s devastating impact.”
“That’s one of the many burdens of racism for people of color: It is ridiculously one-sided. Only one side is expected to show compassion. Only one side must practice restraint. Only one side is pressured into forgiveness.”
“It’s bad enough having to stomach being wronged. It’s downright shameful being stuck with the responsibility of also making it right.”
