10/20/2020

The other candidate isn’t perfect, but their ticket and their platform is one that will move us toward progress and...

9/8/2020
Racial gas lighting is a well-documented and researched experience in which people experience injustice because of their race while simultaneously being made to feel that the injustice isn't real. You've heard it before. The thinly veiled, "It was just a joke," or "We're post-racial. We had a black president!" Maybe you've even claimed that you "don't see color."
