Been living abroad for two years now and in the past year, perpetual race related prejudices, racial disparities and police brutality have been progressively getting worse throughout the United States.
You may have read in one of my previous posts that I am Tanzanian-American; however, I am still affected by these incidents that are happening in a place I consider my second home due to direct impact of colonialism living in Tanzania and racially influenced experiences living in America .
With what some may call as the genocide, and others may call the down right racially influenced, senseless killings of blacks people on a national scale in America, I'm trying to figure it out just as well. We can identify the root cause, the aftermath and its effect, but what's the solution?
I am stuck on what's next regardless of how many posts are encouraging black unity and attempts to re-instill black pride. This is not to take away the relevance and solidity in the message because it is powerful and often times very necessary, but I've come to learn time and time again, that "this" is so deeply rooted as systemic.
