Few years ago, I was offered a scoop of an ice cream named “#ColonialStreet” at @NLChocolateCo

Which #bipoc wants to PAY for a taste of THAT when they can have it for free?

Same ppl who said to me then “what’s the big deal?” now supporting removal of racist elements

I see you
After learning that their ice creams are named after streets in #newfoundland , I filled out a survey asking @NLChocolateCo, “Why would you want to commemorate #colonialism by naming an ice cream flavour after it?”

I never heard back
For those asking why it was “such a big deal to me”

It was one of the many reminders that I didn’t “belong” in the city of #StJohns, #newfoundland & in #Canada. In that moment, I wished to go back to my homeland, India.
I had experienced my #microaggression quota for that week

After talking about it with you again today, I realise that what I wanted all along was a sympathetic ear from a loved one who “understood” me
Not another argument about the ice-cream thing being similar/diff from a colonial statue

So I post it on twitter 😂
