About the author

I am the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent can be found at LosingMyReligions.net. Currently, I am President of One Step for Animals; previously, I was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before my unfortunate encounter with activism, I was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). My hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. I live in Tucson with my soulmate and reluctant editor Anne, along with the occasional snake and scorpion.

Race is not like hair color

From New Scientist, Black men are 2.3 times more likely to be killed by police (77 per 100,000 vs 33). Black women are 3.2 times more likely to die during pregnancy (41 per 100,000 vs 13). 

So despite some people's ardent desires, I think the numbers are clear that there is much work to do before we can just stop thinking and talking about addressing racism in the United States.
