Day 3 of 30

LEAN IN or HOW TO MAKE A WELL-MEANING RACIST NERVOUS or HOW TO LAUGH AT THIS NONSENSE or FOR THE CULTURE

There was one time
I was in a car with
an older white man
who told me
he’d never really
talked to black
people never even
looked us in
the eyes
that this
was new for him

I had
news for him

it sounded like silence
and automatic doors
locking
