nfortunately, this week is loaded with a bunch of negative news. There has been a lot of tragedy in the news these past couple of weeks, and unfortunately I set out to report stories that you may have missed, and that includes good and bad. However, since things are rather on the negative side, I have chosen to forgo the subheadings this week and just jump right in.
I am a black woman who went to a mostly white grade school from K4 - 8th grade. There was one other black kid in my kindergarten class. I was about 21 years old before I saw another black woman my age working her ass off like I was. I am black, but I grew up in a completely white world.
