Thanks for this article.

As a nonblack mixed WOC, I believe that all nonblack POC"s need to do the same: recognize that, in addition to our own burdens as nonwhite people, we are also not black. Our society is potently anti-black as a result of the binary of white supremacy, not just equally discriminatory to all POC's. By the socio-political dictates of white supremacy, 'black' MUST be subordinated.

This is great advice that I try to take for myself as a nonblack person.

Thanks again for writing!
