Dear white people. Black people are not oppressed.

My black card may be revoked as I write this, but I’m here to let you know that in 2020 we black folk are a liberated people. Please forgive the ones claiming “white privilege” as they are still suffering from oppressed and blame syndrome. Yes, racism does exist on both sides and should not be disregarded BUT my issue is on this thing called “privilege”. We as black people do not need your sympathy…
