So, in the early 2000s, I met a woman and F18 Superhornet Pilot American flag shirt dating her, and the fact that she was Black was pretty far to the back of my mind. It was a non-issue to me. We could talk about race and all that, but it still wasn’t something I thought a lot about. We eventually got married and had two sons. Then she was turned down for a promotion at work, and the hiring person flat out told her that it wasn’t a job for her “kind of people”. She was qualified for the job, and she was the only Black person there, and it was clear what “kind of people” meant. She actually tried to find a lawyer, but no one would take the case because the company she worked for was pretty big in the place where we lived, and all the lawyers she found either had ties to them or were unwilling to take them on.
