As tensions rose across the eastern European region, it became obvious that war was inevitable. Reports have been flooding every other Tweet for over a month, speculating as to when war would finally break out. Finally, in the late hours of February 23rd, Russia began its attack on the country of Ukraine.
But for one family in Los Angeles, California, this attack couldn’t have come at a worse time.
Shawn Morales works in the pharmaceutical industry by day, and is an aspiring producer by night. He and his wife, Maxine, and her 2 children are proud African Americans, and have taken the opportunity Black History month has given them to help educate white people on their inherent biases through daily YouTube and Facebook livestreams.
Normally, through donations, they are able to make enough money to sustain themselves to June, where they then educate straight people on their inherent homophobia (Shawn and Maxine are gay btw).
Unfortunately for them, with a potential world war on the horizon, the whites haven’t been worried enough about social issues for the Moraleses to sustain themselves.
“It is hardly enough last us through March” Shawn lamented, “I mean, couldn’t they have chosen a different month to cause global tensions, like October or something?” Maxine corrected her Husband, “Not October. October is Indigenous Peoples’ month. They could’ve done July though.”
With their educational livestreams not bringing in enough money to be worth continuing, Shawn has been forced to put producing on hold, and get another job as a taxidermist in order to support himself and his family.
“I know that world war three is basically around the corner, but Americans still need to realize that they have been slave owners for 400 years, and that guilt shouldn’t just go away now that there’s something real to worry about,” Shawn concluded.
