In the wake of the 2020 killing of George Floyd, African-Americans and others mounted ongoing street protests.
But African-Americans living abroad felt the anguish as profoundly as their families and friends back “home.”
Some have chosen to live in Japan, one of the most homogeneous nations in the world. Despite being in a smaller minority in Japan than in their home country, they express feelings of safety and freedom.
Yet, racism in the U.S. still plays a role in their lives. In this short film, several African-Americans living in Japan discuss how their encounters with police and racism in the U.S. played into their decision to live abroad and how leaving the U.S. changed their perceptions of who they are and their connection to the country of their birth.

My former male classmate SS and I are in the Olympics, I competed in a long distance race on a track near as small shopping center, and some of my coworkers from The BP Library were in the crowd (I am not sure if some of them competed too or not).
My team & I won a gold medal without me realizing this until SS told me as we were walking away from the event.
Sadly, I forgot about this nice dream until I was at work, and so I can not remember most of it now; but fortunately I remembered some of it, except most of the important details, and the best parts of the dream.
All that I can remember of this dream now is that I was inside a large multi-purpose shopping mall-like building on a date with a woman who was possibly a nicer & more relaxed version of the character Alice Morgan from the TV show Luther, or it was a woman who was similar to her & the actress Ruth Wilson who plays that character.
