No More Cancel Culture BS Please….

When white people talk about cancel culture I wonder what it is they’re talking about. Yesterday’s GOP directed voter suppression in Georgia–now a law, a law designed to prevent minority voting is the only cancel culture I’m interested in.
Moreover, if like me, you favor Ernest Hemingway’s “iceberg method” when thinking about stories, you know what’s underneath the GOP’s election meddling–the racist carceral state. The GOP’s slogan should be “less votes, more prisons” and just be done with it.

Boo hoo, you’re a celebrity who got roasted on twitter because you said something offensive; weep weep, you’re a dingbat academic who doesn’t like trans people and now you’re crying about your academic freedom. Cancel culture is just another word for wounded privilege. Oh, and guess what? If Black college students want their own graduation ceremonies that’s their right.

Meanwhile, John Lewis is barely in his grave and they’re working to take the vote away from Black Americans.
