The nation is officially Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane. The President is Fredrick Krueger. Don’t debate me on this. Please don’t debate me on this.

I wish I could say I’m surprised. I wish I could say that this Sith-Gambino crime syndicate government is surprising me.
It’s not. (Psalms 46:10)
I am not surprised this man got confirmed. This governing federal body is only interested in money and power. No more. No less. I wonder if this feeling of dazed apathy is what Ida B. and Mary Shadd felt.
What the world witnessed is the result of what happens when privileged white men are exposed. When they are called to account. What we witnessed is the entire Republican Party tell every vocal survivor, every secret victim, every advocate for the value of victims of sexual violence, “Fuck you.”
It is the observation that misogyny can be internalized. At this point, it’s a fucking institution–complete with a SCOTUS pick.

Second degree murder.
I’d rather this than Jason Van Dyke be free! The whole city of Chicago is suspect at this point. I didn’t know I was holding my breath all day until the verdict was read. After this sham Senate vote, I needed to see something that looked like justice.
Sentencing is on Halloween. You can’t make this up. I don’t want to hear anything less than twenty years. LaQuan will be almost sixteen forever.
This week was hard.
It made me doubt all I wanted to do. I thought about shutting the blog down. I muzzled my mouth, pen and mind. I couldn’t find the beat. I wanted to. But it took a Kevin Hart Masterclass to remind me to be grateful and keep going. Nothing is had without struggle…and even with self-doubt.
So, here I am still here. See y’all next week.
