Instead, we build buildings to store away our collective memory in halls and rooms at museums that become, too, reminders of what America wants to keep hidden from view. Silent.

But you!

So the US press, Trump, Americatreated the Finnish president as if he were black, Indigenous, Latino/a, reminding the press, Trump, America of those invaders looking just like themselves, slashing and maiming and killing women and children, brandishing, too, with hot irons, "tattoos" if you will, marking each African body as the property of "Mr. so and so." Someone looking just like the American standing before you, reminding you that it's just all "rude" behavior. Not racism, crazy!

Along with the US press, Trump and Americans who don't want to hear it, I think the Finnish president a coded messageto those Americans who know first hand.
