TOO BIG TO CLEAN

Growing up in Columbus, Ohio during the 1980s some things are just seared into my memory. I suppose everyone has the same scars that I do. I say scars not because they are bad memories, not at all. It’s just that, these things, they mark you. They don’t hurt, they are just there, always there. …

Do I even have to talk about this?  Do you understand power at all? What about history?  Name a single point in history when evil white men have not been in charge?  I’ll wait? Anything? Even if you do find some historical example its an anomaly. Rich white men rule the United States, they always …
