A hybrid personal documentation of learnings through understanding racism, seeing privilege and unlearning normality for a white person.
If you hate immigrants, no immigrant food. No Mexican food, no Caribbean food, no Dominican food, no Asian food, nothing. Only potatoes. I’m not even saying flavored potatoes. Just plain potatoes, no spice. Because, no immigrants, no spice... I know there are some people right now who would be like, “Well, you know what Trevor? Take your immigrants, take your spice, and get the hell outta here.”
You say that now because you’ve never lived a life without spice. But don’t ever forget, a life without spice was so hard... that it made white people sail around the world to find it. This wasn’t regular sailing... These people lived at a time when they believed that if you went that way you would fall off the edge of the earth and die. And still, some man was eating some white lady’s cooking and was like, “I can’t do this shit anymore!”
