Hi James, and thank you for your response. I actually have friends from all walks of life. As a Black person in this country and not being a member of the dominant society, it is very difficult for Black people not to have interactions with White people, although it is pretty easy for the reverse to be true.

I think as adults, we should all be able to not just co-exist but befriend people who don’t always share our political views. I would hardly choose people in my life solely based on their politics because politics is but one of many facets that make up how a person thinks and believes. And “cancel culture” has very little to do with how Black people relate to White people in this country, but EVERYTHING to do with the well-documented history of our treatment in America.

Evolution is necessary and until all of us, Black and White people can get past all of these stigmas about who can and should talk to whom, we won’t be able to get to a better, more positive place in this country. Thanks again for reading.
