We ought to take inventory about I as an individual and then ME as an AMERICAN, WE as AMERICANS.As a practice .we ought take the capital M from me and reverse it to the capital W for the word We.

    I love this gallery. Everything about it makes me laugh, from Alicia Dhanifu and Rajeyaa Bilal-Varney having the same baffling eyes closed, eyebrows raised facial expressions, to the unintentional irony of the words "black owned" scrawled across the windows of a squalid, run down building, to the intentional irony inserted by whatever bright captioner wrote the bit about Nathan Shaw anticipating a revolution at a protest that only drew 50 people.
