Wherein I use Star Trek: The Next Generation in one final attempt to explain white privilege
Lord knows I have done everything in my power to effectively explain what “white privilege” is in a way that does not immediately cause defensiveness among the white people who hear it. After nearly half a dozen blog and Medium posts, and only God knows how many Facebook posts, I decided to make a video. My hope is that by seeing my charming and totally unalarming disposition, the defenses will come down, and my words understood.
If after this people still don’t understand, well, I will probably lose all hope for mankind. (I’m only being slightly hyperbolic). #BePicard

He strongly believes season 8 of GoT was a crock of ish that done them characters wrong and ruined one of television history’s greatest epic stories—but please, don’t get him started. There are more important battles to fight.
