Yes Jacqueline! I agree. The cloak that is put on in these specific circumstances is a true feeling. I went to the march in LA for the reason to be black and show my face because I felt I needed to represent us. And I was in the right place at the right time. At one point there was a group of women shouting something about America was never great. To which this white woman (45-55?) turned to say, “No, no no. America was once great”. To which I sarcastically said, “Says the white lady” and she turned around, beat red with apology mouth. She wasn’t really sorry but at least I was there to make her feel some guilt. And don’t get me started on those hats.
