When Our Kids Own America -
NEW POST: America’s seismic demographic shift is upending life in our suburbs, cities and our popular culture. So why are we still clinging to the same stories to make sense of these changes?

I was thinking “sewcial justice” *ducks*
HA! LUUUURV that—-i was reeading it quickly and thought it said “sewicidal justice” which was awesome, cuz it reminded me of suicidal tendencies (a thrash band), but i love sewcial justice EVEN BETTER.
I think we need to go with sewcial justice.
HASHTAG: SEWCIAL JUSTICE
I hope no one minds if I totally stalk this tag too. I was just thinking yesterday about dragging my sewing machine out of storage. I get a burning desire to learn how to sew every three years or so, it’s like an alarm clock in my brain that forgets I am too lazy for sewing.
welcome to the sewcial justice tag, where we rewrite the narrative on revolutionary sewing! :D YAY!
maybe I need to pull my sewing machine out and get some quilting on this summer….

I really, really like Black people. I like us when we’re making bad decisions. I like us when we’re listening to misogynist music. I like us when we’re paying our bills on time and we’re not. I like us when we get married and have these beautiful ceremonies and jump over brooms. And I also like us when we’re bold and brave enough to raise children on our own. I like the men who write to me from prison and, you know, use all their jailhouse lingo and tell me about the political world. I also like the, you know, little conservative girls who sit in my class and argue with me sort of the Black conservative line. I’m engaged by us. I’m fascinated by us. I’m always trying to figure out what would make life for Black people as equal, as democratic, as real, and as possible for the full capacity of human fulfillment as it is for other people. I think that Black people are the American promise. —
