Perfected Oppression

Brilliant point of view. Please read.

writers are always confessing

The thing about oppression is this: when you hold someone down, you, too, have to be there to make sure they don’t move.

Here’s the twist: a few years ago, my fraternity brother and I were called “Nigger” by a truck full of white boys in Charlottesville, Va. who fit the Jeff Foxworthy “redneck” stereotype. Quickly, we reminded them they weren’t part of the “Great White Plan” either. Their status in society wasn’t that high either, but definitely higher. See, they get to wake up with at least a bit of privilege, whereas, we’re screwed.

But I’m sitting here now realizing these rednecks’ roles in society. The System, while oppressing US, doesn’t have to stay down with us. They they their minions to do it, making them believe they’re a part of The System too.

A nouveau Taurus, writing about my view of the world around me. From politics, to social problems, to public corruption, music and movies to pretty much anything I feel inspired to write. We all need meaningful activities and hobbies to add value to our lives and take our minds away from the stress of the real world. Blogging does that for me.
