I’m not sure if I’m biased towards my teen-y years, or if I’m correct in thinking America had less internal conflict right after Y2K. I know social media (and being older) makes all any expressed, surface level pain seem more ubiquitous than it really is…..but I sort of have the feeling that racism is louder today than it was 20 years ago.
I could go into why that could be, but that’d be skipping steps and assuming that the premise is correct.
And for the record, I’m still counting my blessings. Also the latest hearings are making me think of America as that person with chronic pain who no longer wants to pay any more attention to their limp than they have to.
