My Father’s Advice On Opposing Racists: “Let Them Keep Talking”

White Southerners are the most passive-aggressive people in the world and you don't even know when they are still fucking with you. I want to shout at people of color to facepalm themselves for not seeing the codes sometimes.

Part II of My ADD Journey Through Life

Ich bin zurück!

I'd really like to start talking about the Middle East again and talking to people that have more than three brain cells, decency and good faith.
