You Have To Give It A Name!

Oct 20, 2017 | | Say something

You have to give it a name. You have to call a spade a spade. It’s just lofty words with no meaningful personal connection, until you do. You have to give racism a name (Thomas “Jim Crow” Rice, Donald Trump). Don’t be like them! You have to give misogyny and sexual predation a name (Harvey […more]
