Racial complacency is never a good thing.
Many fighting racism and the systems that perpetuate it celebrated when Trump lost to Biden. This essay explores why we can't afford to be complacent just because there's a Democrat in the White House. Democrats and Republicans alike have failed to adequately address what ails so many Black and Brown people in America. Author Jeffrey Kass advocates holding Biden's feet to the fire on these critical race issues.
There's a common misconception that only Black folks who live in poor areas suffer at the hands of racism in this country. But the truth is, Black and Brown people who work hard, or who have gone to college, or who are professionals... people who play by the rules.. don't have to deal with racism. This essay explores why that is nonsense and digs into the depth of racism in America and how it affects everyone at every rung of society's economic ladder.

Author Jeffrey Kass delves into this phrase and how we can start viewing it through a new lens.
