Some Black Wisdom
I’m Black in America. It’s been a lot of emotions in these past few weeks. They are the same emotions that I’ve really been going through since I’ve been on social media, reading posts, and watching videos of Black people (most recently, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd) tragically dying unjustly at the hands of law enforcement and racist invididuals with the perpetrators rarely experiencing proper consequences. It’s been a simmering anger, sadness, and anxiety for years. These emotions are also interwoven into other aspects of my life, like my personal experiences of being Black in America, in the workforce, and as a father.
