Not Surprised; Low Expectations

0 minutes, 38 seconds Read

> NS;LX: Traditionally, the phrase not surprised; low expectations (abbreviated ns;lx) has been used as a concise manner to express how one is no longer amazed or shocked by behavior due to the historically predictable actions. Specifically, NS;LX has been commonly used to express how racism is so predictable and unproductive so much that its lowered ones hopes and confidence in humankind’s ability to reconcile it, and thus desensitized to how poorly it’s dealt with in the future.

I’m not trying to start some cool internet trend. Really. It’s just racism is a topic I like writing about and it’s way fucking easier (and funnier) to summarize my feelings with the abbreviation than to rehash it everytime. You could say that I’m lazy.
