I wonder how many stranger’s stories we make it into? You know, maybe someone saw you in passing and told their friends about how pretty the girl in the lavender sweater was. Or maybe they overheard you say a joke and repeated it to their friend, confessing that they heard it from some guy at the store.
"I was just reviewing the details of the killing of this Black youth in Missouri. Can anybody, in their right mind and with honesty, with all that is going on in the US today, say that they don’t see race and don’t see color? Can anybody honestly say that? Or is that just the dodge of a coward that chooses not to recognize reality?"
