Most brown people in America experience racism every day
I don't think that's true actually. "Every day"? Seems like a gross exaggeration.
Obvious disclaimer - Yes, racism against minorities is still prevalent in the US, and I'm sure virtually every one of them have experienced it in their lifetime.
Do they get called the N-word to their faces every day? No, but there are lots of little things they experience daily that you and I don't.
- Surveilled while doing routine shopping
- Police called while doing routine activities: swimming in public pools, mowing lawns, sunning on the quad at Yale, etc.
- People crossing the street to avoid passing when they are approaching
- Lower chances of getting jobs, loans, mortgages, etc.
- Having to pay more for these things or getting lower salaries.
- Getting pulled over by police at twice, five times, ten times the rate as everyone else.
- Offhand comments, "You're pretty for a black girl." or "You're not like most black guys."
And hundreds of other things.
