5. To those blaming RBG for the situation we find ourselves in: just stop it...

This line of thinking is remarkably similar to saying “Black women will save the Dem party” and then being disappointed that a minority group who have been loyal and hardworking can’t in fact work miracles against overwhelming odds.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg never could walk on water, though she could swim like an Olympic medalist. (That’s a metaphor. So sue me.) She couldn’t change water into wine, either, but she could help make gay weddings legal and dance at them.

Just stop it, all of you. Do the work. DO THE WORK AND STOP BLAMING SOMEONE WHO SPENT HER WHOLE LIFE WORKING.

Cross gently, great soul. Thank you for your service to justice.
