I understand that many, many black people feel that they live under suspicion. Or are misunderstood, or rejected for their skin color or their culture. Its not fun to experience. What I'm not sure many of them understand is that there is no one who escapes that same rejection in from other people in some form, whether it's skin color or something else. Example, if you're fat, you don't get hired, don't get dates, aren't included. Ditto for ugly. You're not allowed to be shown on camera except as the comic relief or suffered to speak politically by some people if you don't look a certain way. I'm a white woman and when I visited a dear friend in Oakland and walked to her house from the bus stop, people shouted "Hey Whitey! Why are you here?" at me and made me afraid. I'm not excusing racism or other forms of rejection, I'm saying that if you think you are the only ones experiencing it, you're wrong. Its the nature of unregenerate humans to use ostracism and division to gain power over others and to elevate themselves, and if someone is inclined that way, they'll use whatever is available, skin color or whatever else to accomplish it. The way to overcome it is not to riot or to accuse, but to rise above it and to love.
