I Am Skooter
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
Sun went down / lookin' like the eye of god / behind icy mist / and stark bare trees

Rosa Parks

Rosa Parks passed away last night. Rosa is best known as a woman who wouldn’t give up here seat on the bus.

I’m sure, to her family, she was more than this - a mother and grandmother…in short, a woman.

Times have changed, and while we pretend as often as we can that racism isn’t a problem anymore, most people know in their hearts that this isn’t true. Walk around any sizable city in the United States and you’ll experience exactly the same sentiment whispered quietly. In Canada, I’m ashamed to admit that the exact same thoughts are hurled in the direction of entirely different groups of people - Asian Canadians and Indo Canadians mostly.

It’s frankly amazing how little we’ve grown, or how much we’ve reverted.
