everyone has said and done problematic things in their lifetime. that’s a result of the society we live in, not necessarily a reflection of their character.
what is a reflection of their character is how they react to being informed of the negativity within their behavior and statements, and whether or not they choose to change their behavior.
Sometimes you’re just surfin’ the net, not sure what you’re looking for, not looking to really find anything.
And sometimes, you reach an existential conundrum you have no idea how to even begin answering.

Three white college students file racial discrimination complaint against professor over lesson on structural racism
One of the students allegedly asked professor Shannon Gibney, “Why do we have to talk about this?”
Attention white people: your feeling uncomfortable about history isn’t discrimination.
I remember I had a class on Native American art and fiction in college, and this white guy complained about having to hear about how terrible white people were all the time, and some other white students got behind him, and it turned into this little debate in class between a handful of angry white students vs the rest of us, and it may have gotten heated, and our teacher (a white woman) introduced us to the idea of white privilege, which made some white students even madder. The first guy who complained dropped the class and we never saw him again. Oh nooo! Byeee! Miss youuu!
Arizona banned ethnic studies because it “promotes resentment”. The white people of Arizona literally passed a law telling students they could no longer learn about certain parts of history because it might make you mad at white people. They banned books about Mexican history too! How does that even happen in America?? What was all that “freedom” and “liberty” talk about, if people can legally rob you of learning about your history? I think people need to stop calling it “white guilt”, because people like this (let’s call them racists for lack of a better term) are obviously not sorry, it’s more like “white resentment”, the mere mention of racism irritates them. They don’t want to hear about it, and they’ll stop you from hearing about it too if it’s within their power.
I’m just saying, this article, it is not even a little bit surprising.
Wow. This honestly makes me really sad :/
Well, this is a case where you can either change your major or actually sit down and learn something.
In class, I know, it’s so bizarre to LEARN something in a class.
WHERE IS THIS AND WHY WAS I NOT INVITED?!
The liberation of Gotham has begun!
Now I get why Batman gets so grumpy around the holidays.
He can’t let his guard down, ever. Christmas might be a part of the Penguin’s nefarious schemes!!
Comshock the sniper, part of the same group as Scitracer (I really need a better name for him) and Redlocke. He’s the more comedic of the trio, whereas Sci and Red are the more operatic, overdramatic members.
(After NaNoWriMo, I started work up again on the introductory Cowbelle short, which of course, means I started thinking up more MASKAN ideas, instead)
So, I found out who these guys are.
They’re clones apparently.
Yes. The central mystery is whether they are clones of who they think they are, or what. I did like that the creative team is playing up the bad characterization ON PURPOSE, though.
“In March, due to a natural phenomenon, Siberia’s Lake Baikal is particularly amazing to photograph. The temperature, wind and sun cause the ice crust to crack and form beautiful turquoise blocks or ice hummocks on the lake’s surface.”
