In case you haven’t noticed, our world is royally fucked up. Two different white cops just got away with murdering unarmed Black men within less than a week and a half of each other. And those are just the most recent examples. Police have been getting away with this for, well, forever. Plus there are countless other examples of racism as well as sexism, homophobia, transphobia, fatphobia, and all the other biases out there.
I would like to be marching with my fellow New Yorkers in protest this week. Hell, I’ve had some wine, so I’d REALLY like to be tearing shit down. But I can’t do either, because I’m in school and it’s the end of the semester so I have papers that I have to write.
