We need to be less afraid of making mistakes, and more in tune with our overall humanity.
Thank you, Netflix for standing in solidarity with the Jewish community against the hate being leveled at us.
It is important for all streaming services and mainstream television and film studios to speak up against hate. I have seen it done for so many other communities which have been targeted by hate over the past few years. For those who are criticizing Netflix, I kindly say, FUCK OFF.
The increase in AntiSemitism, hate crimes, violence, and anti-Zionism is at the highest levels in nearly one hundred years. It’s hit levels which match the pogroms which began before the Nazi regime. Certain people are calling for Jewish blood in the streets; death threats are a constant. If you have ignored these reports or live in a bubble, then you are living with a sense a privilege my communities cannot afford.
I represent the Jewish, Asian, and Latino communities simply by existing, and more so because I use my voice when these communities are attacked in any way, shape, or form. I appreciate receiving support from a company like Netflix, which I have personally supported for the past five years.
For those who are demanding they support different issues, I want to speak up and say; They already have. They have not picked and chosen. They have made many statements against hate and then increased programming for that community. No other streaming service has done this.
If this post bothers you, don’t let the door hit you where the good Lord split you.
I feel this on such a deep level.
Americans have a lot of rights that people in other countries do not have, and yet, we live in a time where birds have more general freedom than we do.
The world is changing, and not for the better.
I am in the midst of a heat wave induced flare-up, especially with stormy weather approaching. The same pain which started up for me last May has resurfaced. I went from a four to a, “Please let me die in peace.” level of pain today, which no one should be forced to endure. There’s only so much medical abandonment people can take before they completely lose their minds.
I haven’t completed two articles for this site because I am legitimately too angry to write. Not passing anger, as in, “I just need a few weeks to calm down.”, but pure, unadulterated RAGE, and it’s getting worse. If anyone has to ask why, then they haven’ been paying attention to anything going on in the world. Privilege is when you ignore everything you think does not effect you. Read that again.
I pray July will bring blessings, prosperity, and calm to all. Some of us need a break from the daily influx, and others will forge ahead, no matter what. I fall somewhere in between the two.
I hope to be back here in full-force soon, but in the meantime, I hope everyone is all right.
