Four years ago today I had fear in the pit of my stomach. I had spent the entire year watching people who I thought were sensible dissolve into a puddle of insanity over almost 40 years of dedicated Republican propaganda prepare to vote away our Democracy. Continue reading “Zero…”

I’ll be honest…

I’ll be honest…

I’ll be honest with you.

I hear that everything looks right.
Speeches are flawless. Tech is working.
People are coming out and apologizing for voting Trump.

The “Letter from Birmingham City Jail” was written seven months before I was born, and just under five years before Martin Luther King, Jr. was murdered.

The 16th Street Baptist Church was bombed just under two months before my birth, and JFK was assassinated within my first 20 days on the planet.

This shit is toxic, it’s REAL, and it’s deadly. Continue reading “Another black man dead…Only this time?”
