"I imagine that it feels a little bit shitty to navigate the trials of life with someone and have to stand there and watch that person leave—regardless of whom he or she leaves with. But living in a country that seemingly wakes up every day with the express purpose of making sure you know that, simply because of the color of your skin, you will always be in second place—and then having to watch the men who were supposed to protect and accompany you walk away, hand in hand, with facsimiles of your oppressor—must be pretty tough." - Michael Harriot
