Because the United States is NOT a post-racist state, because the judicial system is NOT color-blind, because institutional racism IS alive, because #blacklivesmatter.
From this past week's string of events and recent decisions made by the so-called judicial system of the United States, imprisoning the innocent and letting the guilty walk free, I have been emotionally exhausted, and now physically sick. I'm going to take a bit of time off from blogging (probably about a week) to de-stress, reflect, and get away. Please do change your Facebook profile photos to the photo above, to stand in solidarity with the invisible, the silenced, the oppressed.
Last night, all minorities in the United States were killed, again.
See you soon. Please take care.
