Watching 12 Years a Slave now. I'm only 15 minutes in and, while, intellectually, I know the horrors of slavery, I am aghast at seeing this visual representation of what enslaving people really is. I just don't understand people sometimes. And to think that many, many people in the South and other areas of the country still think that people with brown skin are less than human.
I'm sick over it.
Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
