I watched this video and it hurt. It hurt because I recognize it as an ongoing conversation in my head. What Michael did here was peel back the veil that many of us wear everyday and allow a glimpse into the completely mental mindgame that I wrestle with everyday as an American who views herself as black and of African descent.
As we wrap up Black History Month I don’t want us to stop celebrating who we are and reaching out to one another. So let’s talk about this video and continue to reflect on our black experiences. Let’s continue to share our stories. How does this video make you feel living as a black person in America?
