I’m almost at a loss for words.
I’d like to say that this woman is the last sane person in America, but that would be far from the truth. In actuality, I think her message reflects the viewpoints of most American citizens. Those who represent the polar ends of the political spectrum seem to dictate the narrative in this country and it’s not difficult to see why they’ve gained the exposure. Members of the Radical Left and the Radical Right are simply more entertaining to watch, so the media portrays these events as a reflection of the norm. In all reality, most of us are going through life in the way that she described, interacting normally with people of every race. Listen, no one can deny that racism still exists in this country, but that doesn’t mean racism is constantly looming within everyone’s mind. I hate to be lax about this, but some people are just ignorant pricks. We honestly can’t do much to change that, but we should at least identify that these individuals don’t speak for us.

The most impressive part of this video was her identifying issues that actually concern her as an African American. This really resonated with me, because African Americans aren’t the only ones experiencing these issues, but rather the poor and disenfranchised as a whole. If you don’t think there’s a correlation between proper education, poverty and crime, here’s a link to check out: https://www.bjs.gov/index.cfm?ty=pbdetail&iid=5137. Poor education leads to poverty, poverty leads to crime and the cycle continues. As for this woman, thank you making my Friday. It’s about time that someone sane spoke up for the people.
