You could say I had gotten pretty good at navigating my blackness in a white supremacist world. I pushed myself to the edge of burnout to prove I was a “good” student, a “good” employee, a “good” member of society. I didn’t use my cultural slang, and I did my best to not be “threatening” in any way. But on the inside, depression and anxiety ate me up, fueled by years of being pushed to the edge by societal reactions to blackness. This past week, I was pushed to my limit.
