ESL tutoring this morning turned into an impromptu history lesson about race relations in the United States and police brutality and boy howdy was it fun trying to boil that down into half an hour and simple vocabulary without minimizing how awful it is.

On a more thoughtful note, the dynamics of me, a white American, trying to accurately describe the sordid history of European colonialism in the USA to a guy of Nahuatl descent whose English is a work in progress is fascinating (and, from my end of things, not comfortable). We’re gonna continue next time so I have a bit of time to get my facts together properly.
