Who are you in History?

On days like today, where the killers of Breonna Taylor were not arrested, I always think of moments in history and the roles we would have played.

Being a history major, that’s always were my mid goes.During slavery who would have stood up to take the beating for a weaker slave? Who would have taken the place as the master’s favorite so a young girl wouldn’t be raped on that day? During the Civil Rights Era, which of my White friends would have been Freedom Riders? Would I have been part of the Montgomery Bus Boycott? Who would have Marched in Washington?

Truth be told, a lot of us have gotten so comfortable in our lives… I’m not sure what would have happened. But I’ll say this, I know who would would have been the overseers- the David Camerons, Candace Owen, Hermain Cains (RIP) and Ben Carsons. They would have thrown over their fellow Black people for a bite of the white Apple.And God Damn, that disappointment, sadness and disgust is as poignant today as I’m sure it was 400 years ago.
