It seems like since Trump decided to throw his hat into the ring of politics, as a person of color (POC) we were forcefully designated to do two things. It seems that Trump has been the perfect catalyst in racist relations, and it leaves POC in the position to be historians, and geneticists to prove that we deserve to be treated as human beings, and to educate white people on their own racism and how they benefit from it today, as they did many years ago. Neither of these things benefit POC in any way, but it seems online racists make taunting posts exercising their newfound bravado as if they were breaking out of an eggshell meeting the daylight.
Dear people of color, this is NOT your purpose or job to teach white people that you are of value and matter in this life. They know you are human, but they would rather hold on to the archaic teachings of their forefathers who were uneducated, fearful of anyone other than their own, and used violence to appease their fear. If you engage in conversation that touches on race, and you drop factual information only to be met with baseless claims in rebuttal, conclude the conversation and keep it moving.
They can research and read (for the most part) just as you did to find the truth. But it also takes someone with compassion and hunger for knowledge to not only seek this knowledge, but also make actions that correct the wrongs they find after gaining knowledge. That is where you see the disconnect. Even when many learn of the mistreatment of people of color, they rarely make an effort to change the injustice, or just do so in voice alone.
Use your time to educate your young, work towards engaging only in ways that benefit the bottom line, empowerment of people of all races who are here to unite and work towards strengthening everyone. Life is too short to sit here talking in circles to people who only engage you to cause chaos and confusion. In many cases, they know the mistreatment of POC is wrong, they just don't care. They often just argue with you to keep you distracted. Don't be. There is enough to do in this life than to argue with those whose only goal is to see more pain from people they consider less than human. Don't give them that gratification.
