1offenedBet if you do think that, it is because you are white. Because EVERY black person I knows finds that idea laughable.  Because the news is revolving with klieg-lights aflash if a white child dies by gunfire, but if a black child does?  Hey, routine and dismissed.  Because black lives apparently do NOT matter the same as white ones.

And because even if nobody shoots a child of color?  The system is arrayed against them before they ever leave school.

And it isn’t only black or Hispanic children.  The “real” Americans, if you want to take the loud-mouthed “Nativists” idea to a conclusion they don’t like?  The Amerindians, the first Americans, are even more likely to be killed by law enforcement.

Herland

The name of this blog, and my Dreamwidth blog, Herlander Refugee, is taken from a 1915 feminist novel "Herland". It makes my heart sing that modern women are experimenting with creation of a new "Herland"! Yes, comments are closed. Anyone who just MUST reach me can do so at syrbal6 at gmail dot com.
