  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $400,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

Malcolm X: Our History Was Destroyed By Slavery 

on March 17, 1963 in Chicago.

see how little we get taught about history - I never had any idea why Malcolm X used the ‘X’. 

How come I didn’t know this

Also that crusty old white man called the named ‘gifted’. Jesus.

Check out this amaaazing TED Talk by Jill Andrew (who we’ve had the pleasure to get to know through our Fat’s How We Roll peer group!)!! Jill breaks down some of the ways fat bodies - especially black bodies - are impacted by discourses of fatphobia & health. 

*TW for discussion of fatphobia, self-hate and some ableist language. 

"Fat is just a description. Its not a prescription - and its certainly not an invitation for hate, for exclusion, for ridicule, for assaults against my body. And it sure as heck ain’t an excuse to make judgments about my health or my morality."

Mills college litter crimes

One walk from the art department to Larsen house.

Just the other day I posted on my FB that “I believe there is a direct correlation between the number of cis dudes and the amount of litter on the Mills campus.”
