Hello to all out there.
Firstly I wanted to say that I hope that everyone is staying healthy and safe.
To quote The Lord of the Rings, "The world is changing..." and I am ready for those changes. Some personal, others much larger and even more important.
I have always tried to check my privileges. I'm a white male (shock), and I understand that there are privileges inherit within that. But have you ever noticed that word before? At the center of "Privilege" is "Vile." How have I not noticed this before? To exercise ones privilege over someone is to commit a vile act.
I had written more, but I realize I am not the voice that needs to be heard right now.
Please, protest against the ingrained hatred. Note micro-agressions within yourself. You may say, "I'm not a racist," and while you may not be physically or verbally harming anyone, just make note of how you think and act around BIPOC and LGBTQ+. Little things can quickly become big. Listen to Black stories and ACTUALLY LISTEN!!! If you cannot go out and protest, please consider donating to causes like Black Lives Matter, The Bail Project, and the ACLU. Educate yourself on what you can do to help end this seemingly endless struggle.
There has to be a light at the end of the tunnel, but we will only get there together.
Here you will find my most recent updates, thoughts, and what else is going on in my life.
