Racism

The Preamble to the Consitution starts with We the People, but what exactly does that mean to us today? Do we really want all the people to enjoy the same liberty that we do? #freedom #4thofJuly #socialjustice #sallyhemings #thomasjefferson #slavery #offroading #mudbog #politics #antiracist

Why I Won’t Stay at Home (Even if it Scares Me)

A Lesson I Don’t Want to Teach “Whatever you do, if the police stop you, remember to act with respect. Stay where you are and don’t run.” “What if they stop me for no reason,” a student replied. “That’s stupid and why should I respect them?” “Good question,” I replied. “I don’t have the answer. But I do know that if you value your life, you need to act compliant. Unfortunately, we live in a world where people judge you…

The Need to Fight for Faith and Equality

You shouldn’t read this book…or maybe you should. It made me question a lot of my worldviews and how I see myself. Am I a feminist? A personist? Why do we still need to fight for faith and equality?
