this is where i hockey

The blog: This blog of mine shall consist of constructive commentary (read: shameless hockey fan-girling) primarily in association with the Chicago Blackhawks. The Toronto Maple Leafs, Pittsburgh Penguins and a few other teams will of course pop up occasionally (or frequently, it depends on my dash really).

The blogging: I tag pretty much everything. I liveblog under #hawks game watching, #pens game watching...etc, and I have a favorite tags page which you should totally check out (it has mullets, folks). Last but not least, I love hearing from people and I'm always here to lend an ear... or an eye.

The blogger: I'm Canadian. I fell hard for hockey almost one year ago and I haven't looked back since. My favourite players are Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews and Brandon Saad.

I’m still excited when I get a new follower.

I’m still happy when a post of mine actually gets notes.

And I still appreciate each and every one of you who continues to follow me no matter how silly, or annoying, or weird I am.

I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged.
