The Edge

Q: What happens if others vote/get to decide my fate without my consent or input?

A: Well, that’s horrible and it sucks. On the other hand, that is literally the mind-bendingly awful reality of what minorities in America live with every single day in America. If you are genuinely worried for your life; reach out to majority members, build coalitions, network, and remind everyone you know to vote as if your life depends upon it. I’m aware that’s not exactly comforting on a day-to-day basis, but I can recommend various anti-anxiey medications in the meantime.
