Former white friends and white family members have contributed to 99 percent of the emotional and psychological abuse I survived. I can’t help but to see that pattern. I’ve experienced psychological abuse even when I didn’t bring up race, but that certainly doesn’t mean misogynoir didn’t make up the basis for the abuse.
We need to hold on to the truth as we see adn expereince events - that is why having reference points outside of white relationships is vital to our well-being ! Thank you for your insightful writing.
