Left-leaning misanthrope struggling with wanting everyone to get what they need without harming others, and wishing everyone would just go the hell away already.
Finally, I like to fuckin' curse.

It's not JUST Starbucks at fault here. It's the institutional racism/bigotry that has the default setting for seeing brown/black people as fear or distrust.
Closing down that one Starbucks (which will likely happen b/c of boycotts) isn't going to change the larger picture. Those people lose their jobs and the corporation keeps on keeping on.

I made a meme. Please distribute.
If it's not too late to make a New Year's Resolution, I hereby resolve to never again watch a show that includes any variety of cop/FBI/etc in the description of the show.
So over the genre, and done trying to give them the chance that "maybe this one I've heard so much about is better".
I've never been into it, and none of the so-called "better" ones are actually better. Just more clever at hiding the grossness.
I don't give a shit if it's a fucking magical world. No cops in fictional TV.
Here is a PDF copy of "Toxic Parents" by Susan Forward and Craig Buck. It was referred to me by my therapist and deals with ways to reclaim your life when you have toxic parents (even as an adult).
