Ava DuVernay's "13th"-- American History

Ava DuVernay's "13th" is American history. It's my white life's witness in the South 50 years ago. Which was nothing if not hurtful, and privileged because I got to study Black culture on a one-year college scholarship.

I was poor, lived in a two-room house poor, witnessed WWII alcoholic vets' violence, but by the time I was in high school, knew I hadn't lived anything like the black victims whose lives I witnessed. And so I knew the rest of white America had no clue. I left. Since then, I might not have done enough, but I've tried.

And I will tell you that Jeff Sessions doesn't give a fuck about black people. No fucks.
