- n. The property of being worrisome.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
UPDATE: To be clear, I think what the student was pointing out was not the worrisomeness of the Klan having handguns, but the worrisomeness of the Klan (or, for that matter, anyone) having handguns in the shadow of the Capitol.
Although the worrisomeness I'm calling a Fanon project has assumed various forms, it began clearly enough as a determination to be like you, that is, to become a writer committed to telling the truth about color and oppression, a writer who exposes the lies of race and reveals how the concept of race is used as a weapon to destroy people.
