Say it loud and say it proud before coming at us with more antiblack bullshit, non-black POC. This also goes for recent black immigrants too, lest we forget the people who make our very presence in this country possible in the first place. All of us POC and immigrants owe a tremendous debt to African-Americans, their history and their struggle, and that should be something that none of us forget.
"Our nation was born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race. Even before there were large numbers of Negroes on our shores, the scar of racial hatred had already disfigured our society. From the 16th century forward, blood flowed in battles of racial supremacy. We are perhaps the only nation that tried, as a matter of national policy, to wipe out its Indigenous population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade. Indeed, even today we have not permitted ourselves to reject or feel remorse for this shameful episode. Our literature, our films, our drama, our folklore all exalt it." -Dr.Martin Luther King Jr.
