If one wants to enjoy the show, that's peace. Enjoy it for what it is.

The majority of the planet's population has melanin. Ha, we didn't just magically appear in 1800s.

So... we’re done now? We can go back to actually talking about stuff that matters like the prison strike and that the US government is denying citizens passports on the accusation that they’re not real citizens because they’re Latinx or Brown and that we’re so far ahead on even the most pessimistic projections for climate crisis?
