the white lighter

Admittedly, this blog and its maintainer have eclectic tastes. "Eclectic," as you might suspect, is a nice way of saying that there is very little intertwining theme to any of this. If you end up liking some (or most) of the things I like, you might find that wondrous.

I seek to post only items which are credited to the originator, be it fine art, photography, tattoos, or writing. If you see something uncredited, do feel free to point it out to me. Also: ask anything. Call me out if I fuck up. Give props if you feel like it. Ask questions. I like internet interaction.

Dear Frank,

I read PostSecret every week and have done so for years. But I was really disturbed to see a racist secret shared in today’s post. I understand that racist feelings are probably a lot of people’s “secrets,” but it’s offensive to spread those kind of thoughts, not to mention further demoralizing to those who are being discriminated against and possibly reinforcing to those who harbor similar sentiments. What if that postcard had contained anti-Semitic thoughts — would you have posted it then? I doubt it. The fact that immigration is a current issue makes it all the more important to take a stand against the racist undertones of that debate.

I hope you’ll remove the secret and never post anything similar again.
