Listening to these stories give me hope!

I have not made my Blaxit yet but these episodes are heartwarming and bring me hope that I too can Blaxit and live a life that is unbothered, where I can experience a life without the fear of dealing with daily micro aggressions, overt and covert racism, and the stress and anxiety they bring.
