The Unbearable Sameness of Cities
A hypothesis: The reason so many of these joints feel harvested from Brooklyn is because they are. Or at least, they all have the same Brooklyn/Silverlake/Lincoln Park aesthetic because that’s what people want. In cities like Pittsburgh or Wenatchee, Washington, children who’ve gone off to seek their fortunes in America’s megalopolises are returning. Some are lured by cheaper costs of living and, in certain cases, more economic opportunity; some are obliged to care for aging parents or other family.

Black Exhaustion and The Jussie Smollett Case | The Mary Sue
The reason I believed Jussie Smollett is simple. I believe victims. The statistics reflect that mentality is more often than not the right one and if a person claims to be the victim of a hate crime with police evidence of an attack, I’m going to believe them. We live in a time where the racism many white people and younger Black people may have once felt was buried is all too above ground. From the thread that began with Birtherism about President Obama to Charlottesville, there has just been reminder after reminder that we live in a hateful society and very often are unable to deal with our past and our present.
