On "A government which uses force to maintain its rule teaches the oppressed to use force to oppose it"
Word. It's been kinda fun but again enraging to watch conservatives tie themselves into knots praising a man they obviously so thoroughly despised. I think a lot of people are doing really good work today preventing Madiba's legacy from being entirely whitewashed, also.
I know a single, solitary thing about poetry and it is that Patricia Lockwood is great.
Yes, correct, burn it all the fuck down and let's start over. Because ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME??!!???
@adorable-eggplant I was a total dick to my partner yesterday, I am making these and offering them as a "don't Hate me" token tonight!!
@bluebears Word, and I'm as big of a Kym fan as anybody, but as the Imam said up top, very recently she backed off a pretty egregious case for what may or may not have been great reasons. I love the woman, I truly do: she's not immune to the trappings of an eminently racist criminal justice system, though.
@j-i-a It's on still! A little better of a mood, I'd imagine, but we'll be there.

@kp23 And that parts fine! That it's followed up by "because I've got a brain" that makes me wanna chuck the whole thing in a river. Especially when she's surrounded by Black dancers shaking their asses! Incredibly insulting/tone-deaf/etc. in my reading.
I hit the exact same point in the song, like all right, OK, "don't need to shake my ass for you" NOPE SHUT IT DOWN. Fuck this shit, man. Just fuck it.
@j-i-a I gotchu. There's an organizing meeting in the morning, I think something's probably brewing for Sunday.
