Even into also, we lived on the Nigga side of town. So. So I don't have is not this dramatic but. I wished deeply that. Now that I'm an adult looking back at it, I wish my parents had removed me from the influence of those white people way before they did. Like I. Wish I was not forced to go to y elementary and white middle schools and like forced to be around those people because they really did a disservice really really fucked my mind up and thankfully I got myself together. But like. I just you know how fucked up it is to grow up there as a black girl.

But if he's if he's saying, you know just Gimme a couple years and then I can transfer the now would be, let's talk about this in concrete terms not a couple of years like give me the month and the year that you are going to be putting in your notice absolutely finding another job or whatever because I will not let my children be saturated in this racist, ass.
