WDDIJ Reflection

WDDIJ Reflection

Bet you thought I was gone for good? Happy 2 year anniversary to Words Don’t Do it Justice. I came back for this special occasion just to share with you all some thoughts. It was a wild ride writing for WDDIJ, even if I wasn’t around the longest or anything – it gave me an outlet to express my ideas and opinions to an audience, something I had never really had before. It proved to me that I could actually go out there and put my thoughts into writing and that people would actually give a damn as to what Read more »

A Fond Farewell

A Fond Farewell

A Fond Farewell Well, this is the last you will hear from me. It might be for good, it might just be temporary, I don’t know yet. It’s been a privilege to be able to express the things that rattled around in my head. I’m grateful to Ruthless for giving me an audience and a medium where I could express my thoughts. Unfortunately, with my schedule soon to be packed with writing I’ll be pretty busy.  So, without further ado, I present to you my final ramblings. This place will get on just fine without me,k so, farewell all you Read more »

White Privilege

White Privilege

White Privilege Right. I’m probably going to get alot of hate for this one, but I can’t be the only person annoyed by this. Recently I’m seeing a pretty interesting trend involving alot of pretty little blond haired blue eyed white girls asking if someone has ever heard of ‘white privilege’. I’m not saying it doesn’t exist, white privilege does exist, and choosing not to talk about it constantly doesn’t mean that I am trying to sweep it under the rug — I just don’t see the point in talking about it as a white person. See, the problem I Read more »

The Absurdity Racist America

The Absurdity Racist America

The Absurdity Racist America – How was this acceptable? Some people would say that racism is dead today in America. They would say that the civil rights movement won, that racism obviously isn’t a problem anymore and that the majority of the country realizes that being a racist is just unacceptable, right? Wrong. Not only are African-American’s incarcerated with stiffer penalties and more frequently than Caucasian individuals, but they remain to this date discriminated on all the way up to the highest levels of government — hell, even with an African-American POTUS, those who would serve and die for our country Read more »

Sometimes being right sucks.

Sometimes being right sucks.

Sometimes being right sucks. That isn’t something you’ll hear many people say, but it’s true. Sometimes you look at things and you know how it’s going to play out, so you make a prediction. Sometimes it’s good to be right, other times it sucks. This is one of the times when being right sucks. See, nobody wins over me being right on this issue and it has done nothing but proven just how utterly screwed we all must be. I know what you must be saying “But Revanchist, what were you right about?”. Well, to be simple, everything I talked Read more »

War

War

War Si vis pacem, para bellum. An ancient saying which, for those of you unaware, translates to “If you want peace, prepare for war” and unfortunately, it seems that war is once again starting to rear its ugly head. To be frank, we’ve never really gotten a break from war. With the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq finally drawing to a close after so many years and so many deaths it seems that American’s are willing to once more send our troops unto the breach. How so? Well, conflict in Iraq is revving up with the addition of a Syrian Read more »

The World Today

The World Today

A Return It feels like it’s been forever, doesn’t it? Some of you might be wondering where I had been, but that’s a complicated answer. Life got pretty busy for awhile and with everything I had going on there just wasn’t any way I could meet all of my deadlines on time and working toward my degree simply takes priority. But, that was then and this is now — I’m back, as you might have been able to guess and today we are going to be talking about a subject near and dear to the heart of all of us; Read more »
