"A person of good intelligence and sensitivity cannot exist in this society very long without having some anger about the inequality - and it’s not just a bleeding-heart, knee-jerk, liberal kind of a thing - it is just a normal human reaction to a nonsensical set of values where we have cinnamon flavored dental floss and there are people sleeping in the street" ~ George Carlin
This man was a pure genius.
The comic works just as well if you ignore the class labels - the white man rides straight to the top, the white woman can MAYBE make it if she climbs the treacherous rope, and the POC is going to have to learn to fly.

“You can’t complain when other people have it worse” is a lie that people in power tell because it sets people in bad circumstances up in a competition. It means when we share our stories, we are always quietly fighting for the prize of being the worst off, and getting a tiny scrap of sympathy.
That keeps us from getting together and asking, why are our circumstances so bad and how can we make them better? It means only one person gets to complain and that person does it alone. As opposed to people working in concert to change their lives, to give each other strength and advice and encouragement.

Today I found out that the old man I used to play chess with in elementary school is still alive! Wow, he was old back then, and that was like 15 years ago. Anyway! That made me really happy to know. My mom said she saw him at the Peace and Justice Fair today. She told me that I’d been one of his favorite kids to be around, that I’d been special to him. That made me happy, too! I could have walked over to his booth to see him, but… I’ve transitioned since elementary school, and I felt like that would be really awkward… Although in some ways I really wish I’d gone to say hello to him, too, ‘cause who knows how long he’ll live any more?
Wow, and for a while now, I thought he probably wasn’t alive any more. It’s like he’s a specter to me, a specter of the past, almost…
Just more venting.
