my friend aly calls this harry potter font

doodling.

bored.

presentation about how people of colour cannot be racist, because of a tautological definition of racism

“you have to be in power to use any kind of ism

dominant versus suppressed

strong versus weak

“and since people of colour do not have power

white versus coloured

“people of colour cannot be racist

“they can only be prejudiced.”

voila.

but i know the tricks: debate, oratory, persuasion

so i roll mine eyes

and i hentam lah

but then they used authority to shut me up

“we don’t have time for this”

appalled

at the small-mindedness of liberal america

(and academia)

hypocritical defenders of freedom of speech and thought and expression

only to prostitute their very own ideals for political correctness

for bloodied truth and mangled common sense

appalled.

doodling.

appalled.

bored.
