Mike Brown was murdered 64 days ago

This is something school lessons really downplay.

I legit thought it only lasted a week or two and was shocked when I learned otherwise.

Because to acknowledge the length of the protests/boycotts is to suggest that the United Stated resisted the right thing. They like to pretend like the country just didnt know what it was doing and only had to be tapped gently on the shoulder before it changed everything. They don’t want people to know that the country clung to its racism for almost a decade after the movement really started. Hell, they act like rosa parks, the million man march and the civil rights act all happened in one year or less. It didnt.

"Your voice sounds completely different in different languages. It alters your personality somehow. I don’t think people get the same feeling from you. The rhythm changes. Because the rhythm of the language is different, it changes your inner rhythm and that changes how you process everything.

When I hear myself speak French, I look at myself differently. Certain aspects will feel closer to the way I feel or the way I am and others won’t. I like that—to tour different sides of yourself. I often find when looking at people who are comfortable in many languages, they’re more comfortable talking about emotional stuff in a certain language or political stuff in another and that’s really interesting, how people relate to those languages."

Clariel was like catching up with an old friend. You’ve both changed, of course you have, it’s been 10 years, but it’s so, so nice to be in each other’s company again. It’s been a rough 10 years, for both of you, and the future is uncertain, and you’re very different people now, but god, it is so fucking fantastic to see a good memory alive and thriving apart from you.
