Attorney, Ivy League, still another n*****

Elizabeth Cary
New York City, NY

I have done everything right in life, yet still I cannot get a cab, people lock their doors and cross the street when they see me coming, I’m stalked by salespeople in stores, I’m “suspicious” when I drive in a nice neighborhood or in a nice car, and my children can lawfully be murdered when I send them to the store for a pack of skittles. Is this the American Dream?
