Wonderful post, Nimra! I believe this post represents the challenges and injustices the U.S. faced in 2020. I agree with your quote, “of the “Two Americans.” This past month we have seen clear examples of Two Americas through the hate crimes performed towards Asian Americans and the white shooter walking away free. (https://www.nytimes.com/live/2021/03/17/us/shooting-atlanta-acworth) While nearly a year ago, a black man was shot for “performing a crime”. (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/31/us/george-floyd-investigation.html) As a woman of color, it’s heartbreaking to realize that BIPOC Americans live in a United States where liberty and justice aren’t protected.
