This topic is so emotive and brings up a host of feelings -There is too much to say but imma start with the anger I feel when ‘educated’ ppl claim the TTT is not like the USA (re race relations), we are a bunch of bandwagonists and that we all get along OR say we should educate those who claim to not know the diff btw BLM v ALM.
