It’s Not Easy Being Black
After giving this article the title, “It’s Not Easy Being Black,” the first thing I’d better say is, I’m white. My ancestors are from Scotland, Ireland, England, and Holland. So, I have no experience with being black. And yet, after sixty-plus years on this planet, I do have a few observations about life, and one of them is this: it’s not easy being black in America.
Today I posted this observation on Facebook. “It’s not easy being black in America.”
