Slavery was bad, okay? Like really bad.
These are the sorts of conversations I’m having in the 21st century.
I have a black face – well, technically it’s brown. But despite the fact that I’m actually half white, for all intents and purposes (and application forms), I’m black.
I have conversations about race more than I’d like to. Some of them are interesting discussions with respected colleagues and friends, some of them are shouting matches with idiots from the internet. Either way, they make me think more, they make me consider and reconsider my own and others’ positions, they make me learn more…
So I’m writing them down for you.
