I feel incredibly betrayed by my education right now. We were taught that the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and 70s more or less fixed racism at the highest levels, right? And yet, here we are again, like almost nothing has changed.

Because almost nothing has actually changed. The villains aren't gone, they just got better at hiding until recently, and now they don't feel like they have to anymore.

When I think about it, it makes me angry. I totally understand not wanting to be present with that anger all the time—I'm not great at sustaining high-energy states like that myself. But we can't forget, either. That's how the bad guys keep winning.
