What can be heralded as a success should also be recognized as a symptom of a catastrophic failure of our society in general. Very sad.

But it’s critical to remember that it doesn’t have to be this way. By exercising our right to choose where we live, where we spend our money, who gets our vote at the ballot box, we can guide the direction of our future. You don’t have to raise torches and pitchforks in order to make a change.

Anita Hill Documentary Is Essential Viewing to Put the Brett Kavanaugh Hearings in Context – IndieWire

The headline took the words right out of my mouth! 🙂

This really was an Illuminating documentary. Fortunately I got to see it in theater in Bethesda, Maryland, when it came out. I would highly recommended in any case but especially right now I think it would be extremely valuable given the political context of the fraudulent Supreme Court hearings we’re witnessing these days.

I was somewhat politically aware during this episode in American history but watching the documentary was so much more enlightening and I came away from it with both an extremely high amount of respect for Anita Hill and an extremely high amount of disgust and disappointment in our white-male-supremacist political leadership (including the now beloved-by-association Uncle Joe Biden) that continues to infect our politics. It’s time for us to finally rid our American body of this virus don’t you think?

Geez Louise. What a racket. What a mess.

Folks, never put yourself below others (Amy Chua + 1, Yale, Ivy League, ANYTHING) because they appear to be somehow superior to yourself. To do so would always be an error.
