The other day I helped one of my favorite patrons gather some books on MLK for her school project. She's in second grade. She explained to me what all MLK had done and how his dream came true with President Obama.
I didn't have the heart to explain how wrong she was. I figured as a little girl of color she was going to grow up in a world that would teach her that lesson on its own.
Oh, hey, can you do me a favor world? Ignore that troglodyte Tami Lahren (Or whatever the fuck the troll's name is.You know who I am talking about.)? The more she clickitty clicks on her keyboard or flaps her gums and we respond the more she is going to keep doing it. Nobody should care with My Roots Are Showing Barbie has to say. Ever.
So when she talks just nod and look slightly past her, okay?
Now I have to call someone in the UK. I think it only appropriate that I apologize for the shit that is going to come out of FVC's shithole today.
