I will not stand in the way of justice. I will not be another obstacle or hurdle. I will not begin to say, “I know exactly what you’re going through,” or “this is true in all communities.” I will not compare our racisms. I will not diminish your experiences because they make me uncomfortable. I […]

Educate Yourself On Black Lives Matter

It’s not enough to say, “I voted for Obama,” or argue on Facebook. Not going to lie. Addressing privilege is the hardest task ever. But, addressing white privilege…is even worse especially when you’re a brown person criticizing that privilege. Before I begin, addressing white privilege is NOT AN ATTACK on the white race. It’s simply […]

The Half of It: Movie Review

A GenZ teen film that I can re-watch several times. When a book smart, but short on cash, Ellie Chu decides to help a jock win over his crush, she doesn’t expect to fall for his crush. In the Half of It, Ellie is a modern-day shy-teenage-girl. Instead of having toilet paper stuck to her […]

Using our broken-ness to help others. If you haven’t already, please read Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson. If you’re not much of a reader, then watch the film directed by Destin Daniel Cretton starring Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, and Brie Larson.

Addressing My Privilege During Corona

Matching my words with my actions.   Storytime! It was maybe the fourth day of my quarantine, and Governor Mike DeWine has not yet declared the Stay At Home order in Ohio.

Leon Hampton and I are not best friends. However, we are people who greatly admire one another. Leon does not judge people by their successes or failures.

Krishna: Why He Helps Others

Krishna Mahadevan instantly became one of my best friends in law school. Since we were two out of the four Indian students in our law school, we stuck together.
