My husband is Black and I am not special.

This essay has evolved and is constantly evolving. While I started releasing it as separate sections, because it's a lot AND I wanted to keep people thinking about all of our parts in racism, I've now decided (On October 16, 2020) to add all of the past prologues into the main piece. I will make note as that occurs. Thanks for reading...
