Here is my face. I just recently finished college. Sometimes I write. I like social justice, comedy, tattoos, and cute boys.
Curious?

Anonymous said: It seems like you don't like Israel. Do you have a strong view on the conflict that's happening in the Middle East? Would you mind sharing it?

you guys i have a political anon this is so exciting!

I do not like Israel and I find it uncomfortable to have my peers excited to visit/live in a country that violates human rights on the regular and is just really fucked up. I wish I were better read in the history of Zionism and Israel to give a more academic answer, but I think there are a lot of great things written by intelligent people on the matter. The more I learn, the more I see parallels between Palestinians and Native Americans and African Americans in this country, which only strengthens my solidarity with the Palestinian people. Indigenous people being displaced by white settlers is nothing new, but the silence and taboo around Israel is really unique, I think. My housemates this past year were very Zionist and Liberal (in the worst sense of the word) and I was really pushed to develop an opinion about Israel/Palestine.

just, don’t leave

Over the past few years I have been greatly disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in his stride towards freedom is not the White Citizens Councilor or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to ‘order’ than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice.
