I’ll experience this, hopefully they don’t.

If all it takes for me is to take on the burdens of intersectionality, just so my brother and sister, and future generations of Black and Brown youth will not have to experience that, then I am all down for the cause. I would not want them to endure such things, I would not want this for anybody actually. Though, the trials and the tribulation are what adds a profound uniqueness to each culture of color. I feel like as society, we came a long way, however, we have an even longer way to go. I believe with time and effort, we will eventually get to that point where race is not an issue, but until then, we keep fighting. #BlackLivesMatter.
