On Charleston, White Supremacy, & Racism

I’m bereft that someone was so radicalized by racist ideologies – in 2015! in the U.S.! – that they murdered 9 people on cold blood – an act of terrorism if you will.  And sadly I’m not surprised in the least.

There is little I can write about last Thursday’s massacre – and the culture that surrounds it – that someone else hasn’t already said better. So instead I link to them:

I’m not the perfect anti-racist ally but I’m trying. And I’m going to fail in the future just like I’ve failed in the past. And then I’m going to apologize, and do better in the future. Because dammit, black peoples’ lives DO matter to me. And white people, we can do so much better than what we’ve done so far.
