“I grew up learning how to suppress myself and express myself about things that matter to me—and what happened in August 2014 was one of many moments that solidified my commitment to always telling the truth no matter who or what it costs me. And biting my tongue about the aspects of white supremacy is not something I can do. Calling it out is uncomfortable, but you get better every time you give yourself a chance to grow out of old, ugly, harmful habits.” -Alexis ( @only1alexis )
