my grandma has late-stage dementia and my brother is experiencing psychosis in jail and it seems like all I do is worry about what’s happening to them, and no one can tell me…
is this a good enough reason to start a gofundme instead of going to the trouble of creating a grift

For example, I think telling a diverse group of employees that they must talk about their personal experiences of race in a shared setting is a bad model! But it doesn’t mean diversity training ITSELF is bad. It was badly done.
