Hi. I'm Lindsay. I like sleeping and I hate doing things. I'm waiting for the day when someone invents the technology to turn me into an octopus. Now you know me.

Howdy,

In a ill-fated attempt to prove my worth to my kickball team in Recess Sports, I managed to pull a muscle in my leg. Luckily our sports medicine staff is competent. However, I am not and took too many aspirins and need to lay down until I am not feeling like the dentist from Little Shop of Horrors.

Therefore I regret to inform you that I will not be in class today. As much as this pains me, my leg pains me…more.

In my absence I offer this: http://www.bekindtocyclists.org/1/post/2014/04/gay-simmons-ghost-bike-removal-and-bike-cross-placement.html

Some ghost bikes are being removed in favor of “less distracting” state-sanctioned roadside memorials.

I hope nothing exciting happens while I am gone.

what if the coins you find randomly at the bottom of drawers and in between couch cushions are actually from spiders trying to pay rent

What if I came out to my parents but did it in Spanish so they’d have no idea what I was saying and just be like, “hahah yeah okay” and I’d be like, “bueno, it’s settled.”

There is no system of oppression in America that actively works to oppress and subjugate white people. Sorry to break it to you, but your individual suffering is just that, individual. The individuals acting against you do not have the institutionalized power to actively oppress you in every facet of your life, nor would their racism be upheld and supported by government, media, and legislation if they did. Because you’re white.

Reverse racism isn’t real because we live in a culture that supports and enforces whiteness as the norm and PoC as other. If you experience discrimination, prejudice, or bigotry, it’s valid to be upset about it and want to talk about it. It is not valid to claim that it is reverse racism, and certainly not valid to claim that it is racism on par with anything like the institutionalized racism that PoC will come into contact with.
