Things that keep me up at night: Driving while black
I’m worried! My son’s battery might be dead, and we are in MA. A friend said he could handle it. My response was, I have confidence in him. It’s Massachusetts and all the racist white people who will not help him if his car breaks down that worries me. Or the white person or cop who will use my son’s bad luck as an opportunity to murder him.
My friend said, “I was irrational.”
I responded, “Not irrational at all. This is the world Black people must survive.”
Am I being an irrational Black mother?
