Some guys around campus wrote some #____LivesMatter on some bedsheets and hung them outside one of the dorms.

There have been a lot of criticism thrown their way, some from conservatives and some from other people who believe in #___LivesMatter but disagree with the presentation of the protest.

I fall in line with the latter.

I think it's oversimplifying things, and by putting them all together you're neglecting the individual needs of each movement. The both have their own issues and by putting them together you're making it seem like those issues are all the same when they really aren't at all.

It's a very roundabout way of saying #AllLivesMatter without saying it directly basically.

And since we're indirectly saying #AllLivesMatter, what about disabled rights?

Oh yeah

Most social activists don't care about us anyway, lol?

And the guy who put this together apparently stole and burnt a confederate flag. Not sure how true that is but damn son. I agree that the confederate flag is a symbol of racism I'm not gonna steal a flag from a townie and burn it. It's obnoxious af, how is it solving the problem?

In lighter news, tenting has begun here. Tenting is a 30 year old tradition that my mom's roommate started because she wanted really good seats for the Madrigal dinner the school hosts.

It's gotten very complicated since the 80's, it's extremely competitive.

It's also very loud outside rn because my dorm is close to the tenting location.

There goes a week worth of sleep smh.

I also finished my paper, only one more to go! (I am so screwed.)
