Dear reader, Yes, I’m talking to you. This isn’t just a generic start of a letter; this is actually aimed at you. Black people, how does it feel to be looked at suspiciously when you’re in an alley? What about you Columbians? How many times has someone joked about you importing cocaine? I’ll answer on your behalf – I am sick of being treated a certain way because I’m from somewhere different. You know what though, it’s not their fault… It’s our fault for not educating the uneducated and showing them that we’re not “all the same”. I for one am tired of being held back in airports after being ‘randomly’ selected (6 out of the 7 times I flew into DC) for interrogation. Time after time I would be kept in the waiting rooms for hours on end only to be asked 3 or so questions about what I’m doing in the United States. That could be a compliment if you think about it – the government will take my word over the visa and I-20 the university has issued me, but we all know it doesn’t work like that.
