Together We Stand Strong

I hear people use the n-word several times a day

I have a strong memory from when I was four years old. The cops came and they took me and my family to jail. They separated us and my mom was put in trial. Ethiopia was at that time in war with Eritrea and we were deported out of the country because my mom is Eritrean. My dad already lived in Sweden and it didn’t take long until we, the rest of the family, emigrated here. I feel different. I’ve always been the only dark skinned in my class. Unfortunately, I hear people use the n-word several times a day. The word has been normalized because it’s being used so often in music and movies and therefore people don’t understand the true meaning of the word.
