Hi, my name is Derick... but some people call me Gary. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I stand in solidarity with the Black and Asian American Pacific Islander communities . If we’re not moving against the tides of racism, we are moving with it. Please consider supporting efforts such as The Equal Justice Initiative , NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund , Stop AAPI Hate , or your local civil rights organizations.

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.
