At first I was going to go with ‘I don’t feel safe here’ but that is bullshit. Tea Party people don’t feel safe; when they can openly show they have guns on their person, have drawings of the president lynched and speak openly and forcefully about their ‘belief system’. No harm has ever, ever, come to them. But they don’t feel safe. Prezident’ gonna take der guns, and what not. But overall, in comparison to POC they are safe. They are super safe.
We are not safe. Safe is not a ‘feeling’ POC in America can ever really have. In the house, what is going to fly through your window? Who is going to knock down your door? Outside? Everything and anything can happen outside. If you live in a bad neighborhood, everything bad can happen. If you live in a good neighborhood, everything bad can happen. Safety is the moment that passed already where that awful terrible thing didn’t occur and your still breathing.
