I promised to repost when I blogged in other places onto here and it has just been pointed out to me that I have neglected to do so. Thank you to those who have implored me to keep writing – trust, I am up to no good as often as possible and it’s keeping me busy! But, I am blogging on RaceWire for Colorlines. Here is my latest entry:
Proud of my Alma Mater
First check out this video:
I am a Columbia University kid, from 1996-2000 I was doing my bit of
student activism at the school and by the time I left I was worried
about the activist energy there. But my boy Bryan Mercer and others
have kept me abreast of rising tides of progressive willingness to act.
Despite the fact that the ‘conservatives’ would never do something
like this, I think the victory of the moment is sealed by the young man
at the end who feels the young activists behaved like animals. I can go
with that if the qualifier is "untamed" or "unbroken" – I think you
would have to be a broken creature to sit by and let someone spout such
racist and unconstitutional rhetoric and do nothing.
Got a smile on my heart for this one!
