“Our FG is a GF now,” he said. “On May 25, 2020 when I learned of George Floyd’s demise, I was visiting my folks in Northern California. As we maneuvered into Sacramento late Saturday night at a service station close to my folks, a moderately aged white lady said to me at the counter, ‘Every time you folks stroll in here [with] veils on, I believe we’re going to get looted.’ Quickly helped to remember my darkness, I was shockingly agreeable back in the forested areas of Northern California, where I’m no more drawn out ‘Jerry Lorenzo’ yet simply one more Black man. A similar person I’ve been as long as I can remember, managing [with] the equivalent predictable subjects.”
