Morning Video Love

South Africa supposedly banned this SABC television commercial (although there are reports it is still running) of an alternative Soweto.

I think because of Summer of Our Lorde, I am thinking more and more about our [insert poc, woc, queer & trans, working class here] anger. Note how this man's anger simmers and then righteously explodes. I felt like I was watching myself waiting to speak....except, as a woc, I may not have spoken at all and let it simmer...because too many of us don't speak our anger and let it sit...and now imagine that anger sitting somewhere in my stomach, twisting, growing, into something violence...or cancer...

Anyway, here's the clip.

And this video has gone around before. Let's give it another push around again. What's worse? The C-word? Or the N-word? And is there a radio silence on the McCain and the first?

Girl! Something you wrote a few weeks ago made me think you were no longer updating here. Now I gotta catch up!

I did pause for a second but went a little batty in the meanwhile. Seems blogging is good for my sanity.

Welcome back to the crib!
