I want to rage, to erase this crushing sense of helplessness in my lungs. To snarl instead of sobbing. I wanted to be shocked at this injustice. To be surprised and treat this as a horrific incident and not just a symptom of a bigger problem.
But I've witnessed how racist bigots reacted to Floyd, the instinctive racist response and "jokes" when people identified China as the one who was at fault with the whole COVID-situation, and how I immediately thought that those "low-key" racist thoughts will escalate someday to deadly actions. I listened to some of my friends when they said that I'm exaggerating.
And I wish- I wish I was. I wished that they were right and I was wrong. But look at our bloodied history. Look at where we are now.
One step forward, eight bloody steps back.

This meme has teeth
Edit: I usually leave as much info about where I have poached a meme from to share with Tumblr as many do not venture from our dark cove into the social media abyss.
The OG creator of this Glorious meme recently made themselves known in the comments and Her Memes are LEGENDARY on other Social media platforms so go check out her blog @jennhasadhd and giver her some love!

Meet the Family is obvious.
World’s Biggest Ball of Twine probably means they’re going on the road.
Pocket Full of Lightning… are we going queen songs!!
Kugelblitz is a black hole formed by radiation… interesting.
Kindest Kut. Sounds like someones being stabbed? Kut is vagina in Dutch apparently just saying.
Marigold, a flower, not sure what that’ll mean. It could also be a person.
Auf Wiedershen is german for goodbye. What I’m hoping that means if we see all the siblings how they would be if they weren’t raised by the academy because Klaus would be German!
Wedding At The End of the Word. I hope this is Agnes and Hazel honestly.
Six bells… six sparrows? Minus Christopher. Or someone dies.
