Quote of the Day

[Content Note: Racism; misogyny.]

"I've decided to stay, even though as a woman of color I feel I've already got two strikes against me. It's easy to believe in progress; it's another thing to attempt to initiate it."—Latria Graham, on returning to her home state of South Carolina, and deciding to stay and fight for more and better.

I highly recommend reading the whole thing. And bookmarking it, for the next time you see someone urging a red state progressive to "just move."

[H/T to Jess.]
