MY VOICE DOESN’T MATCH MY APPEARANCE

Black people are not monolithic. We are a diverse group of individuals with different experiences. I grew up in Colorado and I have my own experience of what it’s like to be Black in America. My experience with racism was subtle but still painful…it hurts when it’s implied that “you’re not like other Black people” or “You speak so properly” (and I want to finish the sentence…for a Black girl?)
