Continued exposure to racism and its effects creates trauma. More white people who think they are allies need to understand this.
A repeated, insidious, ongoing series of events. Your Black friends will not tell you this.
If “racism” as word makes you uncomfortable you should probably unfollow me but instead I’ll say repeated and systematic and systemic dehumanisation or othering of a group of people based on the colour of their skin. It can show up at any time, any place, unannounced.
