Today I say my first "Make America Great Again" cap, and I know I am in the battle fields. I am in the trenches, and I am about to emerge from this with a fervor that you all will not recognize because racism is real and white supremacy hurts, but this Latina has been gaining my strength to make you remember that America was never great to us, and your cap cannot be any more misinformed.
I write this because I know that there are people out there who feel like I felt when I knew I wasn't one of the "fortunate ones" to go to college. I just want you to know that because you might not be able to do it now, it doesn't mean that you're done. In fact, this is only the beginning. I believe in you. Because I AM you.
