Earlier today, I was going to write some high-concept stuff about the entirely made-up BBC phenomenon of #illridewithyou.
I might still, but probably not tonight.
Rest assured, it’s all crap!
You are being sold news and information like it’s soup and soap.
Maybe a little “push back” is in order?
In the light of that spirit, please feel free to tweet the hell out of these pics!
If you have any you would like to add, put them into the comments section.
In the meantime, spend some peaceful meditation on the words of the girl (Tessa Kum) who supposedly originated this hash tag, because she also wrote this:
“I’m learning about hate because I am coming to hate you, white person. You have all the control, all the power, all the privilege, and there is nothing holding you accountable. I hate the double standards and hypocrisy you display, the rank dishonesty of your conduct. I hate that you can harm us, when
we cannot harm you. I hate that you have actually impacted on careers, multiple and not even directly, with your hypocrisy. I hate that you’re so dominant in the publishing industry there’s very few venues I’d consider safe to even submit to now. I hate what you have done to PoC I don’t know. I hate what you have done to PoC I do know. I hate what you have done to me, and I was not involved.”
Well, technically those four will not be riding with anyone that’s not also crossing the River Styx!

Thanks for tanking me up on nightmare fuel!
