I found this particularly saddening. Not because of the obvious racial implications or poorly managed educational facilities, but because of what it does to the boy. I know what it’s like to get excited about making something and then get weird looks from people about it. I think that one of the worst injustices in the world is discouraging a child from doing something great and unique. The world would be a better place if people were encouraged to explore things that they enjoy, especially if it’s for the betterment of society.
As I sit here and listen to this song, I think of how my life has grown increasingly heavy and complicated. “How did this happen?” I ask myself. “What the fuck am I doing?”
And I don’t know. I really don’t know.
