He just wanted everything to go back to the way it was

All he wanted was to get his morning cup of coffee, read the newspaper, and talk to folks downtown about the football game and the new store on the corner.

But those damn yankees and colored people were sitting in his seat and lined up outside.

“Why do they have to make everything political? Why do they have to interrupt *everything* just because they’re not getting their way?”

He’d never done anything to anybody and just wanted things to be like they were before.

The year: 1960.


All he wanted to do was drink his Starbucks, check his feeds, and see how his fantasy football league was doing and what the Amazon daily deal was.

But those damn liberals, women, and POCs were filling up his feed with videos of marches, news clips about what the President has been up to, and demanding that people pay attention and get involved.

“Why do they have to make everything political? Why do they have to interrupt *everything* just because they’re not getting their way?”

He’d never done anything to anybody and just wanted things to be like they were before.

The year: 2017.
