I’m Helping Raise Marginalized Voices by Talking Over Them

Hey! I said HEY!!! Shut up for a second. God damn. Look, just because I’m a white cis male doesn’t mean that I don’t see the struggles of BIPOC and the LGBTQ+ community. I SEE you and I FEEL you. Most importantly, I HEAR you. But even more most importantly, I’m going to help the world hear you. I’m going to lift up all your voices. Because you’re going to have to talk loud as fuck if anyone’s gonna hear you over this sick bullhorn I brought.

And no, you can’t use it.

First things first, I’m an anarchist. That shit is law, dude. For instance, I did not vote in this election. Instead, I went online and ordered the loudest megaphone that unemployment benefits can buy. Sure, I didn’t have a job to lose when the pandemic hit but it’s not illegal to exclude your adult allowance on a benefit application. So here we are.

Many of you don’t seem to understand that in order to change the systemic racial prejudices in our society calls for direct action. You need to be loud enough so people will change their ways and to tear down the structures that support it. Like, see how loud I’m being right now? You all need to be louder than this if anyone is gonna hear what you have to say. And what you have to say is so important. That’s why I’m here to help.

If I can’t hear you, they can’t hear you! And I don’t know if you know this, but it’s really hard to listen when you’re talking.

Sorry, but I have to cut this short. Musician’s Friend is having a sale right now on PA systems. Raise your voice!
