WDDIJ Presents The Justice League: Elite Law Schools Can Do What They Want

WDDIJ Presents The Justice League: Elite Law Schools Can Do What They Want

Elite Law Schools Can Do What They Want It’s my final year of law school and I had just finished my last final exam for the fall semester. Four exams filled with utter misery, confusing hypotheticals and might I add, law- professor- created exams with typos (and they say how important exams are). It was Friday night and I felt like I just got paid but I didn’t. I was completely exhausted from studying and working and working and studying. So naturally, after exams I went out for celebratory drinks with a fellow law student as we bitched and complained Read more »

Prejudice plus power

Prejudice plus power

How does one define racism? I believe the difference lies between being proud of your race and the impression that your race is better than another. Frankly I am of the opinion that whatever your individual racial label placed upon you either by your own hand or the recognition by others, you should be proud of your race. Similarly the ethnicity you claim within that race is yet another reason to be proud. Sadly lacking in many folk is self pride. Is that a problem? I think so, because so many folk spend so much of their time attempting to 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 »

Racism, History, Bigots, and YOU!

Racism, History, Bigots, and YOU!

Let’s get really heavy today The truth of many things we deal with in society is that their history is something to be decried and learned from instead of celebrated. But in some weird self-sabotaging bout of ignorance we as humans and even more so as Americans tend to pass over that until forced to confront the matter. That comes from all sides. Because often historical issues are not just about Racism, they are about Bigotry. And while often used interchangeably, they are not in fact the same. Racism is a systemic issue based on a combination of power, prejudice, Read more »

Decorum Deficiency Disorder: Current Events Sound Off

Decorum Deficiency Disorder: Current Events Sound Off

So let me get this straight… random crazy dude runs all the way into the White House, up the stairs and close to the First Family’s living room, and doesn’t get shot. Meanwhile, unarmed dude following police instructions to get his driver’s license gets shot (shot at 5 times). Three people find themselves infected with the Ebola virus. Two of them, a white man and a white woman are flown back to the US so they can receive the best care possible, while the third, a black man died in a hospital in Texas after having been given a different Read more »

The Letter Series: Dear White People…

The Letter Series: Dear White People…

I don’t feel sorry for you. I know that you are not responsible for what your ancestors did. I know that you are probably good people who just want to live life and enjoy your personal pursuits of happiness. You are on the other hand responsible for how you act and fail to act now. You are responsible for the injustices that are allowed to continue now. Your freedom to move on with your life unaffected and oblivious to your neighbor’s struggle comes at a very high price that you will never be required to pay… because it has already Read more »

Weddings, Reunions, Dental vists, and SHAKE UPS!

So you may have noticed someone has been missing a lot lately. You may have even noticed when he goes missing he doesn’t always explain why. Well…yeah no real explanation, sorry for that.   In other news I have been gone meeting old friends, getting massive dental work, and being best man in a wedding. Shout out to Superfans Chris and Ania Moncrief(aka Superman and Lois Lane) who celebrated their love in the classiest of weddings this past weekend.   But that Shakeup word is here again for good reason.    Things are about to get interesting. Not only has Read more »
