I do not get to pick and choose the color of my skin, where I grew up, or how I grew up, much like I cannot control or change anyone else’s experiences. However, some things are inherently and systemically racist, and I am not “playing the race card” when I bring up historical context and how people have been affected by it.
America was built on the backs of slaves and laws making people of African descent as a lower than the average white person. America has better jobs and better living situations than those of African American descent. America is not the melting pot it claims to be. Neighborhoods seem to be segregated, and if it is a black/African American community, the property value automatically goes down, which is absurd, considering two houses could be exactly alike, but one is worth more because of the neighborhood it is in.
