The world is like “Why are comedians depressed and anxious?” and “Why are academics depressed and anxious?” and “Why are moms depressed and anxious?” But I was depressed and anxious before I did comedy or went to grad school or had a kid. So do those things draw depressed and anxious people? Do they make people depressed and anxious? Or is everyone depressed and anxious?

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.
We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah ‘TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
