Hey guys! So, we’re ten days into the month of July, and there’s only five months left of 2020. I’m pretty sure I don’t even have to tell you guys what’s at stake for the country come November; as it’s been broadcasted all over social media. At the end of the day, African-Americans and other people of color everywhere just want to be given the same opportunities as their white counterparts. We’re not here to steal your jobs or take your opportunities, because there will always be opportunities available! Honestly as an African-American anime-lovin’ man, it both saddens and sickens me to my core upon seeing all the asinine racism that comes out of the mouths of our so-called president’s people, as well as him! I’m not the political type (in fact I’m an Independent), but I’m pretty sure the world doesn’t want another four more years of this.
The only reason so many African-Americans and people of color are upset is because we’re TIRED! Tired of the racism, tired of the bigots, tired of the ‘Karens’ and ‘Kens’, we’re TIRED of looking over our shoulder – wondering if we’ll even make it home! Black Lives Matter does NOT mean Black Lives Better, it means that for all of our lives to matter, we as African-Americans want to be put on the same playing field; be it entertainment or in life in general. There are other races in countries that are more united than we are, so instead of fighting over our differences, why not find common ground? How do hateful people live like this?! Like they’ve got nothing else better to do than to make the lives of others (especially people of color and LGBTQ+) a living hell! Look, I’m all for the American flag and everything, but we need to put the ‘UNITED’ back in United States.
COVID-19 isn’t going away anytime soon, and even when we get a vaccine in 2021, we still have to deal with the remnants of the virus. Unless we want the country we call home to go down in flames, because it will if we LET it, we need to get our act together! As for anime and gaming conventions moving forwards, they will return – just not in the same format we’re used to. (In fact many of the mega cons will have to downsize if they plan on surviving.) So yeah, this post kinda did turn into a small rant, but at this point in the year…I’m just tired!
I’ll probably be in a better mood next post, so until then…stay UNITED!
