Diagnosis: Racial Exhaustion.

Do you have a permanent tan?

...are you suffering from sudden fatigue and insomnia?

...have pounding headaches?

...are you constantly being asked how to fix the racial ills of the world or feeling torn on how to engage people about it?

You may be suffering from Racial Exhaustion.

Symptoms also include:

  • Alternating between wanting to crawl into bed and wanting kick scream and holler

  • Total inability to focus on typical daily tasks

  • Total disintegration of any previously existing filter

  • Excessive side-eye

  • Higher than normal amounts of letter writing

  • A calendar filled with protests

  • Going on unfollow/de-friending sprees

And more...

If you find yourself suffering from any of the above symptoms, we recommend that you TAKE A BREAK.

Hug your loved ones. Take a walk. Watch a stupid TV show. Take a nap. Do your nails.

Side effects may include:

  • A fleeting smile

  • Decreased blood pressure

  • Renewed energy

  • Ability to restore focus

  • And more.

Take care of yourself, and guard yourself against burnout. Rest, it has been said, is also a form of resistance. We are fighting a lot right now, and are vulnerable in so, so many ways.

Stay encouraged. Stay well. Stay focused.

Sending love to everyone right now, especially my fellow Black people who, after centuries of shouting, may finally be heard .
