fam portrait 4 @tonytula's freaking whiting

The indie musician @mitskileaks released “Your Best American Girl,” the first single from her fourth studio album, last March. The simple bass line that opens the song should feel familiar to anyone who ever bobbed along with ’90s indie rock while indulging in self-pity (as most certainly did). @mitskileaks, who was born in Japan to a Japanese mother and an American father, murmurs and sighs and sings about a lover. Then, after the power chords kick in and the chorus lifts off: “Your mother wouldn’t approve of how my mother raised me/But I do, I think I do.” “Mothers have always held such symbolic weight in determining a person’s worth,” the author @jennybagel writes in @nytmag’s music issue. “Your mother tongue, your motherland, your mother’s values — these things can qualify or disqualify you from attaining myriad American dreams.” So, Does Mitski’s narrator really approve of how her mother raised her? “It’s unclear,” @jennybagel writes, “but you can hear in her voice just how much she wants to.” @erikmadiganheck took this portrait of #Mitski for @nytmag’s music issue.

been wanting to hide a lot, sorry to announce it as if it matters to anyone but me, but guess i fear every time i speak or am asked to speak i'm creating a silence. a lot of ppl continue to be more ignored & violated than i have ever been & i don't wish to speak for them or be used in a way where my voice is blurs together indistinctly with all women or all poc when we MUST make those distinctions & NOT allow ourselves to be lumped together with someone else's pain when it signals virtue & set ourselves apart when it confers advantage. well, still, i will speak & have pride when i can! it was really wonderful to talk to @sophialorichards a few weeks after the election abt girlhood & the let down of a feminism that very much blurred the ways in which different groups of women are used to serve whiteness, patriarchy, empire. @artbyemmanoelle took the loveliest photos even tho i had a raging eye infection & wanted to hide for vanity reasons. if you wanna, check out @mythosmag for other portraits and interviews of women. i'll link the interview in my bio for a bit & thank u 4 reading this far if u are still here!

pizza to fuel the end of the american empire

show UP for each other/ don't show OFF/ march for more than just yourself/ it is worthwhile to track your (my) desire for glory, for credit, for forgiveness, for absolution and the impact that has on other people's lives and their survival. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ From "This photo comes from the Roz Payne Newsreel Archive and is part of a series taken outside the Alameda County Courthouse in Oakland in 1969, on the opening day of the Huey P. Newton trial. The Black Panther Party had deeply inspired and influenced Asian American, Chicano/Latino, Native American, and white radicals, and the photos show a multitude of folks attending the rally in support of the BPP. One of those groups was the Asian American Political Alliance (AAPA): the men in the photo were from the Hayward State and Berkeley chapters.... I say all this not to glorify the history, but to emphasize baritonepats’ point that, for AAPA, “solidarity” was not merely posing for a picture—it was consistently showing up for other people of color and working class peoples, it was building strategic alliances between Third World Left organizations in the U.S. and abroad, and it was struggling to build solidarity as an Asian American coalition of different ethnicities, genders, class and generational backgrounds, and sexualities. [5] “Building solidarity” was never an easy or simple process, but something the Asian American Movement constantly worked towards, albeit imperfectly."
