Concert of my Life

Pats posts stuff sometimes, mostly reblogs and likes other posts, usually cats or important issues but often pop culture too.

Some personally written posts are big blog post style, so a "Read More" link is used to shorten posts for browser feeds. (sorry mobile users)

I write a lot about social/political/world issues and you may or may not agree with my opinions. I am not and do not claim to be an expert on any of the topics, and am only presenting my thoughts formed from knowledge gained through research or school. Feel free to let me know what you think, I am always open to new ideas and perspectives.

  • A Page I made some time ago to collect all Posts related to Society/World Issues, but I got too lazy with tagging so it's not updated: Thoughts on Society

    A few days ago I posed the question: Would you rather have economic stability at cost of your dehumanization, or be respected as a full human at the cost of economic stability?

    This article on Racism I’m reading touches on something similar. It tells the stories of many African Americans in the early 1900’s who were light skinned enough to “pass” as White, who got White, better paying jobs. It tells the stories of how they suffered silently listening to and going along with the overt racism of their White co-workers, pretending to be people who they were not, just so they could put food on the table for their families.
