To white male artists
You may see yourself as ‘indie’ or ‘punk’, but at least you have entire societies (and music industries) in your favour that are basically open and affirmative to you expressing your whole experience as PERSONS. They are not rewarding you ONLY when you sing and perform how sexually available you are to guys.

I just discovered this really awesome site. Emotionalbagcheck.com
It’s a site that lets you leave the things that are bothering you anonymously.
When someone chooses to “carry your baggage" they’ll get your submission, and send a song and a personal note to your email address through the site (it’s never shown publicly) that may help you with what you’re going through.
I think this is an amazing idea!
Don’t keep scrolling past this cause it’s actually worth checking out! :)
For reference, the original site seems to be down now but a sucessor-website can be found here:
It’s gotten a very nice design update, too. Pretty, calming.
ooh, thank you!

The problem is that you don’t just choose recovery. You have to keep choosing recovery, over and over and over again. You have to make that choice 5-6 times each day. You have to make that choice even when you really don’t want to. It’s not a single choice, and it’s not easy.

This society is going to become more supremely racist when it is apparently not racist. And that’s where it’s moving to at this point. When a white man tells you, ‘let’s not put race into this,’ he is being the most racist at that point.
You can have a society that removes all public expression on racism. You can have a society were people no longer overtly express racial hatred, and racist statements and behavior is outlawed, but you can still have a system that destroys millions and millions of Black people. Colin Powell and others are the signs of that kind of racism where the Black middle class will be sitting in these jobs and positions defending the system.
You must recognize that racism is not an attitude. It is not a feeling of hatred toward another people. You must understand that racism and white supremacy is in the very structures and values of the institutions of the society itself. And until you revolve and change those structures and attitudes and values you will always be under the bottom.
Dr. Amos N. Wilson
Explaining racism and predicting the future almost twenty years ago (early 90’s). (Source)
This would be why love, friendship, sex, being nice etc. or these individualistic indulgent and at times performative things will NOT eradicate racism. It will be actual work dismantling the institution of racism that is required. (I will say that Powell, for example, had many years of defending the system but regularly critiques racism now. This quote still on point though. Whew.)
I think he just described Denmark.
