Black in this space

Very often white angst is a plea.
A plaintiff demand.

STOP BEING BLACK IN THIS SPACE!!

Because this us my space. Because you are happy being black.
Because your being black in this space reminds me that my life us built on racism and white privilege.
Something about you being human and black in this space makes me uneasy.
It’s all around us. Elizabeth Lauten. Joe Scarborough. Officer Roodha.
All worked up and no one to whip.
Lynch.
Rape.
Beat.
Kill
sell.

Silly white people.
Our humanity can’t be killed.
Our dignity transcends death.
