Thank you for sharing this. I grew up in Mississippi and while not all areas of Mississippi are represented like this, racism and oppression still exist in everyday interactions between black and white people. I went back for a visit recently and sat next to a white male that I went to high school with. It has been 8 years since I've lived in Mississippi so when he began uttering racial slurs I was shocked. Not only was I shocked that a human being could be so ignorant but he didn't even try to whisper or hide his prejudice. I don't know where the solution to this exists other than we must begin by having a discussion about it. Thank you for your work and bravery in discussing what so many people are afraid to talk about. Best of luck to you in your endeavors!
