Tell me how you really feel…

Lately, a lot of events have been unfolding around me that have been majorly stirring my deepest emotions. I mean deep-seated, long pent-up, aggravated emotions. Frustration with broken systems and social injustices.

I work for a tyrant-like organization that is playing a cat-and-mouse game with our jobs while scapegoating us for their blatant racism.

I also live in a state where police can pull anyone over who looks “Mexican” [by which they mean indigenous-appearing, dark-skinned hispanic] and ask to check their paperwork.

I live in a city where a good friend was beaten into submission and sent to the hospital because he’s gay.

And NOW, one of the biggest anti-semite/anti-feminist/anti-gay/anti-black/anti-military churches in the entire country is going to set up shop LESS THAN TWO MINUTES FROM MY HOME to proclaim their hatred for 99.99% of my community.

It all makes me want to go punch a bunny.
