I Am So Fucking Sick Of This World

Did Kathy Griffin Really Go Too Far? She is Trending on Twitter

I am so fucking sick of this world: The bullshit from all sides and the pretense that we live in some sort of democracy where everyone is treated equally or has equal access to basic justice.   I am so fucking sick of the bullshit I hear coming from so-called pundits and experts who fortify the foundation of lies, denials and inequality.

In the eyes of those that benefit from the status quo, racism is non-existent.  Black people are not denied basic access to decent housing or healthcare.  Police brutality doesn’t exist.  It is justified for cops to drive up to a playground and without communication and within seconds shoot and kill a 13-year-old kid playing with his toy gun.

This in a country where the NRA exalts the rights of white men and women to own guns but remains silent when such rights are denied to black men and women.  Philandro Castile murdered for owning a gun legally. I am so fucking sick of this world of bullshit, racism and hypocrisy.

The real terrorism in this world is the status quo.  It’s pervasive, nuanced, overt, structural and deeply embedded as it terrorizes and kills those who are different or refuse to swallow bullshit.  It kills the soul and the heart follows as more people live dead.  It denies targeted ethnic groups safety then blames them for their deaths. Denies those groups decent education, funneling them to prisons and forced servitude then label them lazy and violent.

I am so fucking sick of the status quo. I understand why someone tired of this world would say, I am going but not alone.  That is a person defeated by a ruthless system where recourse or justice is an illusion, not accessible in this life or world.

Yes, I am so fucking sick of this world and I don’t give a fuck whether what I write is proper or not.

Fuck this world!!! #FUCKTHISWORLD #IAmSoFuckingSickOfThisWorld

Those are my heroes. Their sacrifices and death paved the way for my children and I. Failure to Listen is a token of my eternal gratitude. Failure to Listen is a tribute those generations of unmarked graves occupied by people of all races whose ultimate sacrifice of life opened the door for me and others, THANK YOU.

By sharing my personal and professional experiences, I hope to do justice to the perspectives of those who are rarely heard or listened to. This site is not to incite anger but rather to provoke thought. It is my hope that Failure to Listen will work to foster intergroup dialogues and motivate readers to step outside the box and get to know ALL PEOPLE.

  1. Someone said, I let the status quo win when I express anger. My response I let them win when I don’t because then I am not being myself. I’m trying to fit into the status quo of lies that tells me the only emotion I should express publicly is joy and gratitude despite the bullshit, hypocrisy and violence waged against me simply for being a black woman. Fuck that!

    1. Why there is denial of social justice in this world? Look up “Asperger-Justiz” (on https://www.pinterest.de/gertrud4617/), or more generally autism spectrum disorder.

      As a case study you might take a closer look at Gunnar Myrdal and his book “An American Dilemma: The Negro Problem and Modern Democracy”. The nobleprize laureate needs more than 800 pages to proof a) that getting rid of black people in America is not a feasable option and b) that there might be a number of social causes for their lower success in society. So all in all years to distance himself – or also: years where people pushed him to distance himself – at least half-way from his earlier eugenitist and racist believes.
      According to what his daughter and others say about him, Myrdal who graduated in law and economics, clearly had autistic traits. And he is not the only one being on the autism spectrum and holding racist and eugenitist ideas, or otherwise absurd ideas. (See my pinterest page on “Eugenics, racism and ASD” and my other boards on pinterest.)

      For the next one telling you that anger is no good: bash them up with Gandhi (“The Gift of Anger: And Other Lessons from My Grandfather Mahatma Gandhi”). You can also say something like “You are right: Anger is not good for everybody, not for people with the pervasive developmental disorder (like you). But I am neurotypic, so I don’t have real problems with emotional regulation, not like others, so for me anger IS very good. If for you anger is not good, then you just need to learn to stand the anger of people like me.” Or : “You know. There is Linus Torvalds, the developper of the Linux operating system. He admits (in a TED inteview) that he is not a “peoples’ person”, and he advises people like me, instead of requiring people of his kind to be nicer to others, to better become more aggressive ourselves. I have carefully pondered this option, and have come to the conclusion that this is an excellent piece of advise. So I am following it now.”

      1. Hi Eva, I appreciate your response. Will check out your Pinterest boards.

        Anger has always been a strong motivator of change for me and many others. Apathy is probably one of the worst emotions as it usually indicates one has given up.

        Anyway great advice and I thank you.

        1. Another good and short pamphlet on the subject, which was a bestseller in France and Europe: “Time for Outrage: Indignez-vous!” by Stéphane Hessel (2011), a concentration camp survivor, resistance fighter and working at the UN at its very beginnings. He describes also, either there or elsewhere, how the UN was taken over by a certain kind of people, and not the good ones. I think that this happening regularly: after a human catastrophy, there are quite a lot of neurotypic people and the better people on the spectrum that get involved in politics, but then the power positions tend to go without much resistance to anxiety-driven people that are particularly ambitious and hardworking (sometimes to the point of being maniac), but whose engagement tend to suffer from a lack of cognitive (not necessarily emotional!) empathy towards others and towards themselves due to their neurodiverse hardwiring. With them dominating the political field, there is the risk of polarization and radicalization, because their anxiety spirals up.

          1. Eva, Great points! I reread your comments again and wasn’t sure if I responded already. (Can’t tell with the app) so this maybe my second response.

            Do you think political power selects for certain neurotypic types who lack empathy or compassion? That explains much of what we see today plus greed.
