“I’m always annoyed about why black people have to bear the brunt of everybody else’s contempt. If we are not totally understanding and smiling, suddenly we’re demons.”

“For most Black people, the definition of progress is college educated Blacks being drafted by the White social order to be used as a bourgeois buffer zone against the masses of Black people.”

“I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.”

Toni Morrison (via jaegerjaques)

I’ve already blogged this before but it basically sums up my entire philosophy much better than I ever could so here we are.

These are beautiful photos of ladies I truly admire. But! I can’t help but notice, the smaller the subject, the more of her body is shown. 

not true at all! we were shooting portraits, which usually means head shots—there were a few bloggers who chose/wanted full body shots. katya (the last pictured) is/was one of the smallest women there (much smaller than tanesha/edith who have full body shots) and is cut off at her boobs.

“In his Discourse on Colonialism (1951), Aimé Césaire wrote that Hitler slumbers within ‘the very distinguished, very humanistic and very Christian bourgeois of the Twentieth century,’ and yet the European bourgeois cannot forgive Hitler for ‘the fact that he applied to Europe the colonial practices that had previously been applied only to the Arabs of Algeria, the coolies of India and the Negroes of Africa.’”

Mahmood Mamdani, from “Modernity and Violence” in Good Muslim, Bad Muslim  (via tzunuun)

It bears repeating that the reason Hitler is a Western symbol for the darkest depth of all evil, is that he broke the pact of whiteness and did things within Europe that white people agree should only be done to non-Europeans in Africa, Asia, America. Genocide in those places is acceptable, even natural, to Europeans; but Hitler brought genocidal brutality to Europe, and for that he’s the epitome of evil.
