Connect the dots, la la la la...

So after I made this post, I got some important feedback privately which compelled me to write this post today.

This blog is intended to be about all forms of inequality, about the wide variety of -ism's that people can experience in their daily lives. Most of the posts have been (and most likely will continue to be,) about inequality related to race, because that is the factor that is most salient in my own life.

However, I also want this to be a space where I can highlight issues that at first glance, might not seem to have much to do with me. Because if there is anything that a person learns when doing this kind of work, it's that these groady -isms are all connected.

It's like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
