Re: “Police: Essex Man Used Racial Slurs, Waved Pistol at Store Clerk

Wondering if perhaps those advocating for leniency see this situation a bit differently after the terrorist shootings in El Paso and Dayton over the weekend? White men with machine guns are slaughtering innocent people all over the country, and often targeting people of color. We've got to stop this.

Re: “Book Review: 'Their Names Are Mine,' by Rajnii Eddins

Congratulations to Mr. Eddins on the publication of his book - I look forward to reading it.

It is ironic that Ms Goodreaux advises those who might be uncomfortable with Mr. Eddins honesty to stick close to the knitting circle... Actually, there are many Black and brown knitters, designers, and dyers of yarn - and there has been an international conversation about diversity and more importantly, inclusion, in the knitting community for this entire year. Read more about this on Ravelry or Instagram, and/or in The Guardian, the Washington Post, the New York Times, etc.

This white, Vermont-born, knitting, cis-gender woman has been working for Justice and inclusion for decades - and Im not alone! We all must value, listen to, and respect the voices and experiences of our friends and neighbors who belong to marginalized communities based on race, gender, disability, sexuality, etc. We will all be the richer for it.
