I made a really strong connection with Richard today

He made me realize how much I love union organizing, and that it’s the place for me. It’s nice to see he wants me to stay in that field. I got really emotional talking about how supportive Joe was in helping me get better. I’m very reflective today.

I still have a job for now. No news, which I guess is good news. But then I didn’t get a card, but I’ll get one tomorrow.

White protestors came out in force tonight to protest in front of the Ferguson Police Department. Black lives matter.

I had a great week but I’m so stressed out about my job now and it’s making me sad and stress about other things

I could find out any day that I’m fired just because. UGH I like my job even though the union is a bunch of motherfuckers and I want to keep it to say fuck you.

I had a really fantastic (drunk) conversation with Joe

We disagreed on the issue of sexism in the union, but he seemed to think that my opinion of sexism was a white person issue, and that I was missing the racial component. After deeper conversation he realized I am not unaware of the racism in the union and my own privilege but I realized he was right and that I’m not seeing it past my own experiences.

I do like the brother figures I’ve found here.

"And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard."
