I always wondered if there was a space here in the US where you could at least dream of comfort. It doesn’t surprise me much that decency is the first option to die. We all grew up among the resurgent white nationalism of Reagan. Only some of us saw it as a splendid white cone of sugar for racists to suck.

Turns out, the racist hippies and racist hipsters were always in the ascendant. They were always just looking for a way to get out of doing a motherfucking thing. And the racist angle fed them like you’d feed some exotic reptile.
