We take a beating for doing or trying to do the right things.

There is a lot of talk about us getting beat because of this and that. For school closures, for CRT (or really just teaching history in general), trying to gove medical coverage to people, trying to lessen peoples educational debt, etc on and on and on….

If that is what is beating us for doing it then so be it. I would rather we lose for doing and trying to do the right things that to not do them in order to stay or gain power. At some point it will be on the people in this country to finally wake up. I am exhausted with Americans who fight for the people who do not have their best interests at heart.

I am over VA.

Probably some important lessons there that definitely need to be examined but I am over it. TM was not a good candidate and didn’t really say much other than trump bad. It wasn’t enough that he was a Gov before. Additionally it seems that this seems to happen in the off year election cycle there.

Important lessons to be learned for sure but we cannot let the MSM tie this to us like an anchor. Too much work to do and wallowing around about it does nothing to serve us.

Onward. Upward. Go!

A big part of our problem is white people

A big part of our problem is white people cannot wrap their heads around the fact that POC are Americans. They are so scared of POC (and specifically black people) that they will vote against their own best interests in order to stop from having to come to grips with that fact. Hell they cannot even accept our own history of what happened in this country. Until people come to grips with the fact that when POC people are struggling, hurting, or being mistreated, Americans are hurting we will never move on. Republicans love to push this button.
