Have y’all heard of ‘leaning bars’? Apparently in 2017 the Metropolitan Transportation Authority in NYC installed leaning bars. Planks of wood bolted to walls for people to lean on; in the subway stations, getting rid of benches you can sit on. In part I imagine to eliminate places for homeless people to sleep, old news I know. But what struck me is this; we create terminology disguised as dishonest niceties to eliminate questions. ‘Leaning Bar’? What we should them are bars representing our inability to address economic and financial disparity which leads to the phenomenon of socially driven narratives causing realities of division. IE, elements contributing to the roots of racism. Speaking of New York...Brooklyn...Nets...Kyrie Irving; ‘Load Management’ is just a nice way of saying taking a paid day off and cheating your fans because it’s your birthday.
