think4yourself

annaverity:

The ungenerous part of me looks at the front page of today’s New York Times and thinks, WELP, someone call me when we can summon even half this level of collective grief and outrage for the I don’t even know how many (shh, not white) children who have been shot in Chicago this past year.

I’m not proud, but I’m pretty sure I’m not wrong, either.

In other news, I probably shouldn’t blog before sunrise.

    “We wake up in Chicago and hear about 15 people dying overnight, the majority of them children.” I had this conversation...

  7. sexartandpolitics said: I’ve been unable to muster much grief for this because the first thing I thought of was Chicago’s kids and the second thing I thought of was Pakistan’s kids.
