To him, being black in America means that you bear the burden of every American citizen – black, white, asian, hispanic, straight, gay, male, female, and all others. He feels that the treatment of black people in America serves as the barometer for the treatment of every other person in this country. Black people built America centuries ago and still fight for the freedoms that many other Americans enjoy with little to no struggle.
