New focus for Blog Like Crazy

And now, for something completely different. 

Y’all have probably noticed that I haven’t posted since Tuesday. The election results and subsequent wave of hate crimes, hate speech, and general bullshit have left me with a lot of deep grief.
Here’s the thing. As a cisgender straight white woman, I experience a goodly amount of privilege. Much has been written from this viewpoint that expresses what and how I feel. It’s not my place to do that again.

Instead, I’m going to resume Blog Like Crazy for a different purpose: To highlight organizations working to preserve the rights of People of Color, LGBTQ+, women, people with disabilities, and all Othered communities. To be a signal boost for writers of color. To provide resources on how to be an ally. Because it’s up to us, White people, to LEARN how to be allies. It’s not on these communities to teach us.

If you don’t think there’s a problem, unfollow me. If you believe that the reaction to this election is the same as the other side’s to 2008, these posts are not for you. I’m not here to argue, I’m here to provide resources. Love trumps hate. In fact, it’s the only thing that ever has.
