A Political Side Note

If you believe it is okay for the state to tear children away from their families,

If you believe that it is a sin if you are not heterosexual and do not present as the same gender you were born as,

If your interpretation of religion is too narrow to include women’s leadership and sheer existence,

If you support the criminalization of breathing while Black,

If you think it’s categorically your fault if you’re poor,

If you think that children are to be seen and not heard,

If you do not actively speak out about the sale of weapons used to slaughter children in schools,

If you do not believe that mental illness is something physical and real,

If you have ever called any group of people by a name that diminishes their humanity,

If you are not outraged by the systematic erasure of Black history,

If you support Donald Trump still,

If you are complicit in the systematic oppression of immigrants, LGBTQ peoples, women, African Americans, youth, the mentally ill, Muslims, or any other group that has been systematically oppressed,

I cannot be your friend anymore. I cannot support your platform or what you are about. I cannot be about what you are about.

Enough.
