A friend texted me the following article on Sunday morning. She is the woman featured in the write up. We have known each other since our children were young, hers just stair steps behind mine.
We raised our kids as single moms, without help from our former spouses. She was the first one to go back to school in pursuit of higher education. I admired her courage and ambition.
I had no idea what she was up against.
Racism is systemic.
Please read the article, just a part of her story.
