I agree. The BIPOC experience is unique not only to people with brown skin but also each individual in that group. Sometimes we get so caught up in the collective “black experience” we forget to ask people exactly how it’s effected their lives. Thinking about it, it perpetuates the “I have a black friend” mentality. You know, THOSE people — the ones who think their proximity to a black or brown person means they “understand” the experience. They don’t realized they’ve now forced their BIPOC loved ones to become ambassadors for the collective experience. It’s something I’ve thought about a lot as a multiracial woman. It’s bloody exhausting.
