This is exactly how I feel and instead of blogging about it, I decided to repost the brilliance that is the Crunk Feminist Collective. I have the same sentiment about Sandy Hook and how Santa Claus is fed to children, here in the USA. I have been very frustrated about how the use of Santa Claus obscures where toys and other gifts REALLY come from, most of the time (exploited laborers, many times enslaved children that harvest cocoa to make ‘cheerful’ holiday chocolate treats for children in the USA. )
There is so much violence that children NOT living in a white USA suburb also experience, but it is masked under neoliberalism and globalized white supremacist capitalism. Thank you Crunk Feminist Collective for speaking truth to power!
