bunnies and cats because bunnies and cats
Happy Easter, Peeps!
Emancipation was supposed to be enough. ‘Separate but equa l’s supposed to be enough. Brown v. Board of Education was supposed to be enough. The Civil Rights/Voting Acts were supposed to be enough. Affirmative action was supposed to be enough. A black president is supposed to be enough. Yet, here we are, facing mass incarceration, food insecurity, chronic unemployment, the erosion of the social safety net, income inequality, housing discrimination, police brutality and the seemingly unending deaths of our young people at the hands of police and armed vigilantes. Pardon the ‘profound gloom.’
What some call depression or pessimism, I would call impatience and rage. Our impatience and rage is what has produced progress. That we are still impatient and angry reflects not black people’s failing but how far America still has to go. My question/challenge to white people who claim to be on the side of equality and justice: when will you get just as angry that these things have been done in your name?"
Because everyone does it. That’s pretty much the beginning, middle, and end to that. I will still elaborate however. Black men’s apathy comes from the fact that no really says different, so it couldn’t ever really be internalized…
As many as possible.
Already got some?
Today is the anniversary of The Simpsons first appearance on television.
On April 19, 1987, “Goodnight” was aired on The Tracey Ullman Show.
Happy Birthday, Simpsons!

“Raising awareness about cat welfare is a good look for your husband’s upcoming campaign strategy. Don’t you think supporting government action on missing and murdered indigenous women in this country would be a better look?”
