This article is inspiring and validating. But it’s kinda like reading Game of Thrones because I really enjoy reading it but I have to imagine that the characters aren’t all white Nordic type dudes. I love that book series even more when I imagine that Cersei is Filipina and Bran is Blatino. Anyways, that’s how it goes in the the WSCP world. I wanna build me one of those playgrounds in the hood I live in in my imagination. All colorful and community minded and we don’t let cops in. There’s no lawns because they’re all sustainable gardens. Actually cars can’t get in at all because the beach is coming up between the cracks. And you live there and you live there. There’s a BBQ at the basketball court that has the lights on late nights. Its kinda like that Rye Rye video Sunshine but more revolutionary. Sucks that alternative education and access to adventure playgrounds is pretty much a white privilege. Unless you go to to The Free School! Represent!
The Overprotected Kid
A preoccupation with safety has stripped childhood of independence, risk taking, and discovery—without making it safer. A new kind of playground points to a better solution.
