Race is a completely distorted term and concept. We look different depending on science/nature. No reason to group other than to oppress and control. I go all over the place in this episode, but this is the net: Vote and please Vote American. We have strayed so far from what was inked by our forefathers. I hope we can finally have a real chance to practice the words of equally for a consistent period.

AJ is an illustrator and sells his work through his company, Cotton Crustacean in Pacifica, CA. His passion for Marine life and all its beauty is infectious. He would love it is anyone that who stumbles onto his illustrations would learn at least a small bit on how we can contribute to the conservation of our planet. So much so that he now has a series on Youtube called “What lives down there?” which dives (literally) into waters as he narrates his finds.
