White America, Have You No Deep Shame?!

White America, Have You No Shame?!

You can’t hide or deny our history into nonexistence. But you can choose to reconstruct a better future for black, indigenous, and people of color

Sniff. Sniff. Do you smell that?! Do you smell the stench of yet another bullsh*t period of “racial reckoning” in American history?
