granada holmes

(no subject)

The Kid asked for my opinion over what's going on out in Ferguson. She's some stripe of Middle Eastern and her dad is dark-skinned (I'm not sure the exact ethnicity - somewhere in Near Asia, or maybe the Indian subcontinent, I think?) so she's a bit sensitive to racial issues, though she looks white herself. So I spent a good part of yesterday looking through the court documents released from the grand jury.

I flattered myself some of you might be interested in what I thought of the whole mess so thought I'd write it up. I know this is a sensitive issue so I'm going to put it under a cut, and if anyone needs to keep on scrolling I won't think any worse of you.
