Hey let’s do something like the ALS Ice bucket challenge, but to show support for Ferguson, Missouri!!!! But instead of pouring ice down our shirts, we just call people out on their racism and try to disassemble racist institutions! I call it the “Don’t be a bigot challenge”. Similarly, it makes people temporarily uncomfortable, but it can have a long term impact. Try variations… It works for sexism/classism/nationalism AND ethnocentrism! And, rather than me nominating you to do this, you should nominate yourself—because you’re a good person, right?!?

Watching “Boyhood”, finally!  Beyond excited! Also, Starbucks has a mystery drink called a “Valencia Orange Refresher” that is made out of green coffee beans (I.e., pure caffeine). (at Lincoln Plaza Cinemas)
