Alright, so, for serious, it’s like a Mad Max Dystopia out there this week:
(3) UT Austin college students of color are being assaulted with bleach bombs
(4) Islan Nettles, NYC trans woman dies in hospital after a savage hate motivated assault in Harlem (unsurprisingly, the perp was initially charged with misdemeanor assault, because yeah, that seems like a proportionate charge for BEATING SOMEONE UNTIL THEY DIE)
(5) hundreds of Syrians killed in an attack, maybe chemical, maybe not
(6) dozens of people were just killed in a series of bombings in Lebanon.
. . .I’m sure there are many more gruesome stories that I am blocking out for my own sanity.
