This week we’re talking about forgiveness. This subject is about a year old. We had initially planned on bringing it up when we talked about the Charleston Church massacre and we decided against it. A week ago, we were watching a documentary about Black Wall Street and toward the end there was a portion where they talked about how the survivors (said they) forgave so they could forget the massacre. That portion of the documentary was what we had planned on basing our feelings about black people’s peculiar relationship with forgiveness…and then the Amber Guyger hug-fest happened and we felt like we had to purge ourselves of our feelings before both of our heads exploded.
