I preserve it with my journals, my short stories and my drawings, and my experience altogether. I may not be from the "Ghetto", but you can't escape being black where ever you go.
You can imagine the looks on my Jewish friends faces when I tell them that jewish racism is not the same as Black racism.
However, I am concerned about this situation. In thecity near me, some people are moving back to the city and the locals are standing up to the violence. But I can do little more than pay donations and be an invisible worker in the back.
You guys are the first for me to openly admit that I couldn't relate because the only responses I've recieved were sentiments of hate or resentment that I truly did not deserve. These people are more trusting of someone who shared their experiences. *I* didn't abandon them, but they hate me any way.
I'll still help them whether they like me or not. I hate seeing people with potential being left behind just because of circumstance.
