“We hurt”

“We really live in this city. And we hurt. We go through stuff every day. Every day. This is life. We deal with this every day….”

“...We’re messed up inside. That’s all I want to say. We’re messed up inside.”

“...We’re hurting. We’re hurting.”
These are comments made by a man in Baltimore interviewed a few minutes ago by Chris Hayes. There seems to be a limited range of emotions allowed to poor, black people in the US: they have a choice of rage or hope. I reject that. Racism, systemic discrimination and violence, and economic injustice hurt people. They hurt.
