Everyone always wants to make sure that any WOC who is successful "earned it" (spoiler alert: they never seem to!) These standards don't ever seen to apply to white men.

I highly recommend this book. It will keep you from unnecessary & counter productive arguments. It will humble you, yes we all have a privileged in certain ways. It tackles almost every topic that would enlighten the reader about systemic racism. Well done

Less than halfway through Thin Skin. Streams today only. So appreciating - excellent filmmaking/acting, cultural insight that's making me thoughtful, a look into the life of new friend . Who knew she was a talented actor? Don't miss it.

Just a reminder that your independent bookstores are doing the best they can to get your order out. And went to see and got to see what they’re up against for myself. They’re trying. Please be patient.

The NYPD brought dozens of officers and a *helicopter* to arrest a organizer who they wanted to charge with assaulting an officer ‘by yelling through a megaphone close to her ear’ . They left when it turned into a PR shitshow

I enjoyed the WAP video. Bright and colorful and wholesome. Educational. But why the Kylie Jenner interlude? No one asked for that.
