I’ll Still Complain About Politics Even When I Don’t Vote – Fight Me

I am a non-voter who has the audacity to still be upset that my people are dying. I have been told innumerable times that I am not supposed to be allowed this. “If you don’t vote, you can’t complain” is perhaps the most common non-voter shaming refrain I’ve heard, right up there with “your ancestors died for the right to vote.” But I am not generally one to accept what society allows me to do as gospel.

Posted on May 23, 2017 at 1:28pm 0 Comments

Just 1 in 5 Black and Hispanic students in New York City are "college ready" after four years of high school. 235,000 kids go to schools where 100% of the students qualify for free lunch. 1/2 of schools have 12 or fewer white students. These are just a handful of statistics from the New York City Department of Education that are listed on the #TeensTakeCharge website explaining why the organization…

#MenAreTrash & #NotInMyName: South African women are not here for your sh*t anymore

This past weekend, hundreds gathered in Pretoria to make one huge statement against violence against women and children. Operating as a group called #NotInMyName, these protestors—most of which are men—followed a woman symbolically dressed in white through Pretoria to take a stand against the violence they’ve enabled or ignored for too long. "The time to take collective responsibility for our shameful action is now," protestor Kholofelo Masha told AlJazeera.…

Blaming the Obamacare repeal vote on leftists who were critical of Clinton is tasteless and counterproductive

Posted on May 8, 2017 at 5:37pm 0 Comments

On Thursday, the Trump administration finally made significant progress on one of their biggest and worst campaign promises: the repeal of the Affordable Care Act. After a similar bill's high-profile defeat in March, this time Republicans in the House succeeded in patching together enough votes to dismantle the foundations of  Obamacare, with twenty GOP lawmakers joining the full caucus…
