Thank you, Teal, for sharing this. As a black woman I have always been aware of the racism and have experienced it myself so I was not surprised at the event but, hope people could finally wake up and see what has always been happening in this country. When you said, "African Americans always saw it," it brought me to tears. Finally, someone could see the pain and didn't deny it or want to. I can recognize my prejudice against white people, Mexicans, and even blacks because of my experiences but, I am willing to change because I truly want to live in a world where we can celebrate each other'
