Systemic evolution (Patrick Mahomes) > systemic racism (Colin Kaepernick)

Why do we (black people) think our failures define America more than our triumphs?

There’s never been a better time to be black in America than right now. Social media has made us believe it’s 1852 all over again, that there’s been no change. We think George Floyd’s interaction with Derek Chauvin exemplifies America more than Barack Obama’s interaction with Joe Biden, than Mahomes’ interaction with tight end Travis Kelce.

America’s not perfect. No place is. But outlook determines outcomes because outlook determines strategies and priorities.

If your worldview is that you’re the wrong color to achieve success, you will not achieve success because you will choose a strategy devoid of hope and set the wrong priorities.
