Yesterday I mentioned that the political party I volunteer for is creating a blogging project. It’s not going to get up and running until the new year, but in the meantime I’ve decided to start preparing. I created a side blog specifically for talking about politics: it’s called gritlife, and if you want to see me talk more about liberalism, that’s where it’ll happen from now on.
"Reblogging because in my country that is dominated by USA culture and entertainment, I’ve seen CHILDREN that dislike their own brown bodies because they cannot connect with the characters that appear on TV. Kids whose whole family is of color, the majority of their friends, and the majority of their country, feel like they are not worthy. This not only affects the way white people have no empathy for people of color (which is obvious just by looking at how they disregard our complaints as exaggerations), but how much empathy people of color in the USA and even other countries with a brown majority, feel towards themselves."
