My complex relationship with Black History Month

My complex relationship with Black History Month

Yes, today especially, will be one of those days. So one of the things I’m often loathed to deal with is the current month we take part in here in the US. And there are a lot of reasons for my general state of annoyance. Some of which I’ll get to over the course of this particular piece for your viewing. Whatever this month means to you, I’m sure you will be offended. Remember all emails should be sent to yourruthlesswonder@gmail.com, but let’s get moving.

Decorum Deficiency Disorder: Break Time

Have you ever been so tired and fed up with reality that you knew if you didn’t disconnect from reality, you’d be calling up your best friend to help you hide the bodies? . . .
