this is advice given in both writing & art. tell the story that is yours to tell. do not try to tell someone else’s story.
today, reading about the hate & racism that is being stirred to a fever pitch by donald trump’s fucked up campaign, i decided to take a short hiatus from moses jones to address my experiences as a white person in this country. my experiences with the racism i was born into. my experiences as a recovering racist who still has hope that we can overcome this horrible, horrible condition. (i don’t know if condition is the right word. “disease” makes it seem as if a racist is helpless to their state of racism. we are not helpless to overcome the racism that lurks.)
i am working on two comics.
one is my experiences as a recovering racist.
the other is about how i feel regarding the state of racism in my country today.
we need to stop. we need to heal. we need to grow.
