I want to thank the Herald-Leader for two more thoughtless opinion pieces about millenials by syndicated writers David Brooks and Ross Douthat — white, middle-aged men who don’t even live in Kentucky.
I suggest before the paper decides to publish more commentary on millenials they get some primary sources and do some work instead of being entitled to their uninformed opinion pieces.
I have a few leads for you on what millenials are doing in our community. Please check out:
We Move, a peaceful protest against police brutality in which 300 Lexingtonians shut down Main Street. The protest was led by two women, Rozalyn Alyse and Diamond Roberts, who are still in high school.
Take Back Cheapside, a campaign to re-educate Lexington on the harrowing history of Cheapside as a slave market and to take down the statues glorifying the Confederacy. Hit up DeBraun Thomas, if you want to follow up.
How about the grassroots punk festival DisPuppy Vol. 1? Happening Oct. 21-22 to help raise money and awareness for the Bluegrass Rape Crisis Center. Contact is Nick Pulliam or Ida Lucille Sell.
