"I'm not mad at you. Please don't think that I am mad at you. I am angry at the situation, not you. And forgive me for being so ugly with my rant. I'm just so terribly frustrated by the lack of interest within our communities to make a tangible effort to make things right; by the willful ignorance of the overwhelming majority who know -- WHO VERY WELL KNOW! -- that this is wrong but refuse to stand up and finally say it aloud; by the fact that so many of these people I've come to know, love and respect choose to be led further astray rather than TRY to once -- JUST THIS FUCKING ONCE! -- come together, support one another (yes, goddamnit, support me!) and possibly effect change for the better -- and not just for themselves, or for us, but for ***EVERYONE!***
Forgive me for being disappointed that loyalty is considered to be such a sentimental and, therefore, useless commodity these days.
Forgive me for being disappointed that the vast majority don't truly believe that we deserve better and, therefore, should demand better.
Forgive me for being disappointed that people don't live up to my expectations.
I'm not mad at you. Please don't think that I am mad at you.
But know this:
If our roles were reversed,
If you were the one suffering,
If this had happened to you,
I WOULD HAVE THEIR EYES."
