Shamefully this is a first for me. I have never blogged or tweeted about politics, but somehow this time around the situation is truly settling in—and for good reason. It should affect you too.
You see, I’m a firm believer in equality, and seeing all that’s happening around is not acceptable. See Paradox of tolerance.
I don’t have much to say, in particular because saying things like “racism is wrong” or, as the image says, “Black Lives Matter” are like saying “the sky is blue”… and I feel silly for stating the obvious. But it has to be said because it seems a large percentage of the population think otherwise 😞
Anyway. In looking through a bunch of blog planets (huh, yes, they still exist!), I’m seeing a complete void on this matter—and as people are saying, staying silent is being complicit. So here go my 2 cents in trying to change that.
I’m not very clear on what to do to help so I have started by donating some money to related causes. And, even though I have a bunch of topics in mind I’d like to blog about, I’ll hold onto those for at least a week to leave this up as the top post. I should do some reading too.
