Courtney, why do you spend so much effort complaining about microaggressions, while remaining completely silent about these 1.2 million macroaggresions — “the FBI said about 1.2 million violent crimes occurred in 2015, up from 1.15 million in 2014” — that we inflict upon ourselves in places like New Orleans, Detroit, St. Louis, Baltimore, etc?

If you put shit in perspective, I might have some time for you.
