Black people are fatigued, says diversity and inclusion leader Mary-Frances Winters. It is physically, mentally, and emotionally draining to continue to experience inequities, day after day. And it is exhausting to have to constantly explain this to white people, even well-meaning white people, who too often are unwittingly complicit in upholding the very systems they say they want dismantled. Winters describes how in every aspect of life for the most part, the trajectory for Black people is not improving. Black people are quite literally sick and tired of being sick and tired.
