So, I won’t lie, son. Recently, a bunch of you fine folks have asked me why my blogging has been sporadic lately. The truth is, I’m fucking exhausted, man. Frankly, there’s so much happening in the world right now, it’s sending a lot of us, including me, into a tailspin. All I can say is, I’m having a hard time keeping up with all of the injustice occurring around us. With all of that being said, I’ve taken a step back for my sanity.
Like, where do I even begin, fam? I mean, I’ve already talked in depth about Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd. I haven’t even gotten to the recent murder of Rayshard Brooks. I haven’t even gotten to the sexual assault and subsequent murder of Oluwatoyin Salau. I haven’t even gotten to the suspicious deaths of Robert Fuller, Malcolm Harsch and four other Black people who were found hanging from trees. I haven’t even gotten to Riah Milton and Dominique Fells, two Black trans women who were killed last week. Shit, I haven’t even gotten to Colinford Mattis, a fellow PREP 9 alum who’s facing 40+ years in prison for allegedly burning an empty police car. Side note, everyone can donate to his defense here. In any case, I’m legitimately having a tough time handling all of the news, bruh.
All in all, I don’t want people to think that I don’t care, son. In actuality, I care so much that it’s painful to watch everything unfold. Ultimately, Black people are going through the fucking ringer right now, man. Sometimes, I just don’t know what to say, fam. That is all. LC out.
