Do you "Have black friends?" 🙄👎🏿

Or do you have black people that consider you their friend? 😃👍🏿

If you thought that Green Book was awesome and deserved "Best Picture," there's a good chance that you have black friends.

Try to understand why so many black folk hated it.
"But I know a black person that _loves_ Green Book!"

And Ben Carson and Kanye West _love_ Trump. Trump is still anti-black, and most black people don't love him.

If you believed that black people love Trump, I would think that you might not know enough black people. 🤷🏿‍♂️
Please don't feel attacked if you enjoyed Green Book! You are not a bad person. The movie was _designed_ to make you feel good about civil rights and racism. It's doing its job.

But understand that those good feels come at the expense of the impacted folk. Be aware of this.
