"Stop using 'People Are Over- Sensitive' To Excuse Racial Bias"

"And it is because of this that I just can't get behind dismissing a whole entire group of people's shared experience as "over-sensitivity." Just because I don't see it day-to-day or have not experienced it first hand doesn't mean it's not very real. "

"So the next time you want to roll your eyes because you think someone is being overly-sensitive when discussing race-relations, perhaps take a moment to consider the possibility that you're just not being sensitive enough. " Toria Sheffield, The Huffington Post.

Racism

"You expect little
We do more
Still not satisfied you hate us
You see our outside
And expect the same to live within
I'm not just a color
I'm a person
I have a heart that beats
Lungs that breathe
I'm just like you
But you're too blind to see
The root of your stupidity
Intolerant of different
Afraid of different
Seems like you're the one with the problem" Written by Freeflow23

Blackbird by The Beatles

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free.
Jessica as Cilia Foote: "...I wanna say thank you"
