Monday’s Blurbs …

I was so hell bent on getting myself some eclipse glasses and now I’m seriously contemplating never leaving my house. Sometimes you expend so much energy on the chase that you lose interest in the prize.

I love television. I often meet people who “don’t own a tv” or make a big deal of being outside with nature. Don’t ask me why these people are drawn to me, but they often are. Anyways, I totally support their dislike of tv and being a couch potato, but I refuse to join them. Television is cool. Writing is cool. I love storylines and disappearing into fantasy lands. If I die on my couch binge watching a show, I won’t have a single regret. Embrace what you like folks, and make no apologies for it!

When Your Pain Doesn’t Spur Action

 
I just read an article about how U.S. cities are ramping up their efforts to remove Confederate statues.
 
I immediately thought of Bree Newsome. Do you remember her? She’s the activist arrested in 2015 for climbing a flag pole to remove the Confederate flag in South Carolina.
 
Do you remember that time? The Charleston Church Massacre had just happened. Nine people were killed in an historically black church during prayer service.

The nine victims in the Charleston shooting. Top row: Cynthia Hurd, Rev. Clementa Pinckney, Rev. Sharonda Coleman-Singleton middle row: Daniel Simmons, Rev. Depayne Middleton Doctor, Tywanza Sanders Bottom row: Myra Thompson, Ethel Lee Lance, Susie Jackson

Tuesday’s Blurbs …

Lil Duval. A grown ass man calls himself that. Have you ever heard him speak? Did you really have higher expectations? And he made his comments on the Breakfast Club. So basically, an ignorant person said something ignorant on an ignorant show. I know why you’re mad … but why you made though?! If you ask me, there IS something scarier than his comments, and that’s getting to a place where there’s no existing forum for people like him to speak. We shouldn’t silence oppressors and pretend we’re safe. We are not. People agree with this fool. They FEEL him. Let us never get comfortable. So no, I’m not interested in a boycott. I don’t believe you should allow machinations to take place in the dark. Keep letting stupid people speak … and start listening to them and believing them!
