"In the constant con game of American two party politics, the suffering masses are forced to swallow images of the Republicans as reactionary racists and Democrats as the sound defenders of the working class and people of color. The reality is that both parties are completely beholden to the forces of oppression that have ground the working class and people of color to dust for ages in this Country. This tired political charade lets Democrats cast themselves as the safe haven for Black and brown people by doing nothing more than pointing at “those evil Republicans” who want to deport you or send you back to the plantation in shackles. The truth is that today’s American political establishment on both sides is designed to protect the interests of big corporations, the monied elite, and Wall Street."
"If you are an artist on Tumblr, and you post your work via Instagram, you are insane. Aside from the fact that Instagram posts generally look terrible because it leaves hashtags in your post body (which undoubtedly annoys your followers) it also lists “Instagram” as the source. In other words, you are intentionally stripping credit from yourself and giving it to an app."

"Our uniqueness makes us special, makes perception valuable—but it can also make us lonely. This loneliness is different from being “alone”: You can be lonely even surrounded by people. The feeling I’m talking about stems from the sense that we can never fully share the truth of who we are… But this loneliness is the impetus for writing, because language is the best means we have to connect."
