Black Colleges

Black students are more inclined to enroll in black colleges now

Amazingly, if you shit on people then they don't want to be around you and would rather be around others like themselves. Also if you refuse to allow them safe space, they will seek to create their own.  

For black folks, that means don't expect white people to protect you; take care of yourselves.  And if their goals are not yours, then don't give them your money; keep it in your own cause.

Half-Price Sale in The Moon Door

This week, the poetry of The Moon Door is on sale for half price.  The sale runs from Monday, September 19 through Sunday, September 25.  This series is fantasy about the members of a women's chronic pain support group, some of whom decide to trade their current conditions for lycanthropy.  It features themes of werewolves, women's relationships, disability, endurance, diversity, family of choice, and friendship.  Sale prices range from $34.50 to $80.50.  There are three epics in microfunding at present, so I'd rather not open another.
