Weekly Wrap-up | May 31, 2020

It’s time for another weekly wrap up, in which I round up books I’ve read, posts I’ve made, and thoughts I’ve had this week.

Well, oops! I sort of dropped the ball this week. On Wednesday, I was writing up my WWW post but had trouble uploading images and then my computer crashed. I was so disgusted that I decided to scrap the post and stay away from my blog for the day. Somehow, that translated to three days. Oh well, I guess I needed a break.

Meanwhile, the world has been completely turned upside down. At least in the US. Yet another black man, George Floyd, was murdered by the police and people have had it. There are protests all across American and, from what I understand, London and Tokyo as well (although, in Tokyo, they are also protesting police brutality of their own police). I personally am incensed and tired of the injustice people of color face in my country. I want change.

Unfortunately, I’m not sure what I can do. There was a protest yesterday nearby, but I didn’t find out about it until now. I’ve donated to the Minneapolis Freedom Fund. More importantly, I’m starting to actively educate myself about anti-racism and what actions I can take to help. I know it’s not enough, but I hope it’s a step in the right direction.
