"Yes, poor little old you. There we were, discussing rape, violence against women, systemic oppression and other manifestations of sexism, and you had to jump in to remind us that “not all men” do these things. Why don’t you really say what you want to say? “I HAVE NEVER RAPED/HIT/ASSAULTED A WOMAN!” Right? Isn’t this what you really want to say? Yes, make a discussion that is about the plight of MILLIONS of women about poor little old you. I mean, millions of women are being assaulted and oppressed, but you’ve never done it, so why are we making you uncomfortable with these discussions?"
Brenda Wambui breaking down the ridiculous “Not all men!” phrase over at Medium. Top-notch work. (via itmac)

Fred, by far, is one of the coolest people I’ve had the pleasure of working with. And it was definitely a treat to see a former member of the Madison Scouts do a mace  demonstration for the students at DMA! #withpride

Michael Aaron William: portraits with coffee on old ledger paper

Michael Aaron Williams created these impressive portraits using only coffee and ink on old paper the years 1920/1930.
It focuses on the ephemeral nature of the human being. Beauty and pain of human nature are represented by the creation and deconstruction of the work.

"Saying people of color are obsessed with race is like saying that someone is obsessed with swimming when they’re drowning."

Hari Kondabolu  (via jakeenglish)

"“Race as Resistance” (RR) is a newer concept of “race,” constructed with positive meanings. It is the result of proactive resistance against hegemony and social domination. RR indicates the use of race as a discursive strategy to expose existing (or contemporary) racial discrimination and to operationalize identity politics." -Yasuko Takezawa
