open letter to white ppl:

living life as a colored person means having to live without being able ‘to identify with the state but always looking like the victim’ (Ayesha A. Siddiqi). i don’t know of a more systemic and traumatic manifestation of cognitive dissonance.

this post is for those who can’t find their stories in textbooks, who can’t see their humanity or their suffering portrayed on TV
