We are at a crossroads in our nation after people stormed the capital chile. People ask how did we get here? Really? As if mods of angry white men have not caused harm and destruction in this country before.
What this firmly highlights is that when certain groups of folks talk about this nation, they are not including Black folks, Latin folk, Indigenous folks or Asian folks. Only the white vote matters. And this was an attempt to erase all of us. And it is imperative we unite in order to move our country forward in a way that is inclusive and empowering to all communities. But before unity can happen, White folks must have a long reckoning amongst themselves.
I really don’t have much to say about this that has not already been said, but I do feel that is important to day that the evolution of this country stopped for some people in 1950 and others of us are ready to progress to 2050. Our only question is what year are you fighting for?
I’ll take 2050 for $500 Alex.
