Nicole Townsend

Nicole discusses the complexities of modern day society and how embracing radical imagination may offer a way forward.

It’s on every news station, in every newspaper, and it sends us into a frenzy each time we scroll past it on social media. That “it” is racism. It is xenophobia. It is classism. It is homophobia. It is transphobia. It is sexism. It is another police shooting. It is another mass shooting. It is lies told by the left so that they appear to be allies to Black folks. It is white nationalism. It is. It is. It is.

It is always something. Something to let us know that most of us will never be seen for anything other than a target—despite how much we assimilate and accomplish the goals that will only prepare us to continue to stay in alignment with the very thing seeks to kill, steal, and destroy.
