The comment from The Grio stopped my heart. It is so true and I understand the  depths of its truth to my core.   I would have been one of those black folks if I haven’t attended an HBCU and read everything I got my hands on.  It is so appalling how these systems have robbed many of us the ability to see, love, hear, protect and feel.  We are divided bodies trying to survive in a world hostile to our very existence.
