5 POC-Friendly Travel Destinations to Help You Ditch Election Fatigue
“I’m gonna look for my glory, yeah
I’ll be back real soon.” –Solange
This election season has been especially difficult for people of color, due to the extreme hate-mongering and xenophobia that’s been emphasized by Donald Trump’s campaign. Meanwhile, many of us are feeling lackluster about being “with her” given Clinton’s track record for promoting anti-black policies while refusing to take a stand on the DAPL.
Like Solange beautifully crooned in her song “Weary,” sometimes it’s okay to just get away. Websites like Travel Pirates and Secret Flying are making getting up and going easier and more affordable. Here are some local and international travel destinations to check out if you need a place to explore, decompress and look for your glory.
