Class tension is building, and it's beautiful

Today on my way to work for a staff meeting about the current government shutdown and interesting thing happened. I was waiting for the max and folks were talking about the government shutdown. i joined the conversation and we talked about how if food stamps are cut, there will be riots. This is real talk.

We all got on the max and proceeded to keep talking. More and more people were joining us. It was a town hall meeting basically. All poor folks, black brown white, all of us talking. We all agreed that if food stamps are cut that we will be fucking pissed and that most of us will probably do what we gotta do to eat.

It made me smile in joy. Class tension is building. We are no longer taking the governments shit. Im excited for what this might bring, and you should be too.
