This has nothing to do with words and everything to do with politics. For that, I apologize, but I hope you read it anyway.
Gov. Romney has said that the election means something at the state, local and personal level, and that we should ask ourselves what kind of America we want for our children. I agree. I think the values of the nation and our economy are much bigger than any president, but I think policy does affect our country today, our personal lives, and our future. I take the election personally.
At a future point I will provide a bit of personal context that went into my decision to do a reblog of this post by Kamilah Aisha Moon. No, nothing like what she described, but more like the journey I took in 2010 to become much more aware of the importance of my health to my survival and the survival of my writing and research. But first, read Moon‘s essay by clicking on the link at the beginning of my post and think about health, Black women, and Afrofuturism When I post my response here, it will also be cross-posted in my new blog Professor’s Lounge. Yes, I am launching a blog just on academia in the very near future.
