If when I say “black lives matter” it threatens your feeling of being a part, you have just had a taste of exclusion. Now that you have experienced it, I will not invalidate your feelings. Please do not invalidate my experience as a black person in the United States of America.
From the slave patrols to the KKK, the police force in the USA has had a bloody history and there are people who hide within the blue to do dirt. There are also people who hide within board rooms, employment offices, financial institutions and other places who covertly exercise their option to not see me as worthy and only because of what they think I might be.
