Comparing yourself to others is an act of violence against your authentic self.

Remember: the time you feel lonely is the time you most need to be by yourself. Life’s cruelest irony.

Ever notice…


When an innocent black person is murdered, the media goes out of their way to dehumanize them and paint them as a criminal.

When a white celebrity dies, the media erases every racist and/or problematic thing they ever said or did and paints them as a hero.

I can and will say you’re too naïve, optimistic and apologetic.

I recognize that Joan Rivers had a lot to overcome to become as successful as she did in her field, and female comedians (particularly and especially comedians of color) are still struggling to break into the industry with the same ease as males.

I’m not going to celebrate her death, and chescaleigh definitely didn’t. But for me, and for anyone else who has felt hurt by her racist, sexist, transphobic, Islamophobic, and homophobic comments, this is just another day and there is no pressure or obligation for us to praise what she did. Her death doesn’t erase the pain she’s inflicted on others in the name of comedy.

And that comment about Laverne Cox’s experience with Joan Rivers… being nice to one person does not give her an excuse to turn around and shame entire communities of people or other individuals. She may have been an absolute sweetheart one-on-one, but the fact remains that she has made some awful statements. Ta-Nehisi Coates has a great article about The Good, Racist People; just because someone is very polite and warm to you doesn’t mean they don’t harbor or express racist/sexist/etc. thoughts in other situations.

Most of us know that California and many other western states are in a state of severe drought, but visualizing the crisis is a different story.

Getty Images photographer Justin Sullivan captured these dramatic aerial shots of California’s reservoirs and placed them side-by-side with images taken several years ago.

I don’t understand how all Muslims are called terrorists because of what one group of 19 extremist men did 13 years ago.

But white people aren’t called terrorists when they invaded their countries, killed millions of civilians, when they shoot up schools, shoot up movie theaters, and kill random POC, especially black people. Isn’t that something?
