A lot of things could change when you shake a white man

I would wake up in the dead of the night and assure myself that ‘colour’  is just an unfortunate entity that found itself not just on the skins of people but also the minds. And then i wouldn’t know when sunrise will zoom in. It was a very colorful burden, but I never realized how heavy it was, not […]
