Rant on Racism: Last night's concert was more than just a magical night full of the best visuals and an amazing musical performance. It was a comment on the world's state of affairs. Waters was very clear on his stance, "Trump is a pig." And it was powerful to see Trump's words and actions displayed with tracks like Money and Welcome to the Machine being performed. Waters' performance of The Last Refugee literally brought me to tears. But I want to share an incident that happened with my friend and I, while we were waiting to enter the venue. My friend is also from India, he's about my age. So we were two brown youths waiting in line, when he received a phone call and decided to step back outside to take it. As we turned around two white males made a comment, "Yeah, go back and get rid of your guns." I was so shocked, I didn't even react. I couldn't believe someone could make a comment like that! I have never been so offended in my life. I had such high expectations from the audience and to have come across such disrespectful and racist individuals was a major disappointment. I faced another incident on Friday while traveling back to Chicago from Malta. I had a layover in Frankfurt. I was minding my
own business and was approached by an airport security official. The lady tapped my shoulder and told me I had been chosen for a random
check. This was not even at a security check-point, but while I was walking to my gate. I was a little taken aback but gathered myself and agreed to go with her. When she took me to the checking area, I looked around and could only see people of colour. Not a single caucasian individual had been brought for a random check. While this birthday weekend was spectacular and magical, it was also an unfortunate reminder of the biases we face because of the colour of our skin.

According to the official White House statement, visitors from the UK and elsewhere can apply for places, saying: “If you wish to visit the White House and are a citizen of a foreign country, please contact your embassy in Washington, DC for assistance in submitting a tour request.” But the British Embassy in the US capital quickly repudiated the announcement, citing the State Department: “The White House website states that foreign nationals interested in touring the White House should contact their Embassy to arrange a tour. “However, the Embassy has been advised by the US Department of State that this is on hold. We are therefore unable to process any applications at this time.” It’s unclear whether or not this is some kind of petty revenge for the UK parliament’s decision to ban President Trump from an official state visit or perhaps a heightened security measure.

I am an amateur fine artist but this sketchy drawing was inspired by an event. Few days ago, a friend sent me two gory videos of massacre of two Africans by their fellow Africans. I fumed, I stood transfixed at the sheer brutality and hatred exuding from the mob as they lynched the foreigners. South African youths have taken the laws into their hands. Migrants from other African countries like Nigeria, Mozambique etc were their targets. What was their crime? Your guess is as good as mine. As these troubling events unfolded, one man came to my mind. Nelson Mandela, the disciple of peace and the father of South Africa and Africa generally. What an irony! A father has given birth to children who have a contraditory traits. He will be up there weeping for his children. The core values he passed to them they have abandoned. While Nelson Mandela sought peaceful coexistence, love, and forgiveness, his children sought violence and oppression. They forget so easily how Nigerians and other African countries helped them fight their freedom from oppression by the Whites(Apartheid). Now the reward we get is them oppressing and killing us! #xenophobia#

No two memorials carry the same connotation and resonance, even when these two memorials commemorate the same tragic period in the same city fewer than a ten minute walk away from each other. Both use abstraction to provide a different sort of sensation, yet ultimately provide similar thought and emotion.
The first one, and far less globally famous one, is both visually and emotionally reflective. It commemorates the burning of books by the Nazis in 1933, along with a chilling quote from Heinrich Heine: "Where they burn books, they will also ultimately burn people." The white bookshelves are shockingly bright when empty. The lack of colour from spines and covers brings a sense of despair and reminds you of the colour fleeing from the world at the book burnings. This memorial is underground, and therefore easy to miss unless you know it's there, which I feel adds to its potency. It's easy to miss the building of a totalitarian regime too, which is why your eyes always have to be open.
In contrast, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is a place for gathering and socialization. It's packed with people having picnics, playing tag, hiding through the rapidly growing pillars. It's a lived part of the city by design, which makes it difficult to quietly ponder yet feels symbolic in a way... it's reminiscent of the post-war Jews becoming more of a lived part of society. The pillars do not tell you their meaning, unlike the bookshelf which practically weeps it. Are the pillars claustrophobic or protective? Does the wave represent the progress or the acceleration of xenophobia? Do the slanted pillars represent encroachment or disorder? Are we meant to analyze the shadows or the acoustics? It's many things for many people, which ensures that you take the meaning you desire out of it. When you know what it's for and you see what it is, it becomes your journey of quieter, slower, more public reflection. (Ethan)

Repost @abortion_is_misogyny
・・・
Can you legislate morality? To a certain extent yes, all laws are based on morality. Sure some laws shouldn't be & it's true laws will not make one a moral person. But if your idea is that abortion should be legal because it's immoral otherwise you are making a case for morality. If it violates one's life, liberty or property it should be illegal.

To be in Germany in Ravensbrück was a special experience for a young French student who never imagined he would be at one of the spots on the path of the history of humanity: the Ravensbrück Concentration Camp. Yes, my arrival in Germany was more than a journey of discovery. More than an exhibition, by stepping into the past, we better understand the future. This curve allows us (to try to live “again” the difficulties that the deported had met in these camps and) to understand where the atrocities and badness of certain humans came from, while confronting this past to the present. After a few days of visits, I am assured that humanity doesn’t deserve this barbarism. Indeed, the Shoah may have regarded the Jewish people, but beyond this genocide, it is all humanity who was, and will always be involved. Futhermore, this is confirmed by the fact that, in this camp, a lot of detainees weren’t Jewish: they were members of most of the cultural minorities, resisters, and those regarded as antisocial because they refused to obey the régime. You shouldn’t run away from the past—indeed, it’s not flattering--but on the contrary, face it to never reproduce this act again. That’s why everyone at his/her level (international, regional, national, familial, etc.) has to appropriate for him/herself this memory work to teach present and future generations how and why we have been there, and how to avoid the reproduction of the past.
Today, everywhere in the world, similar situations seem to reproduced. In Europe, Africa, America, Asia, the rise of nationalism, the increase of hate speech, the instrumentalization of fear, and the thirst of domination are all red signals of the danger in proximity which is, again, looking out for humanity.
This is way I invite every human to rise and to say :

They say that that the Iron Curtain was torn down in 1989, as commemorated by this Iron Curtain memorial, but I think the forces of nationalism and xenophobia across Europe and the world are doing a pretty good job of trying to rebuild it #ironcurtain #budapest #hungary #houseofterror #xenophobia #nationalism #europe #europeanunion #communism

Box braids are so much more than a trendy hairstyle! They have years and years of cultural and historical significance. I can't stand when people try to erase their significance in order to justify appropriation.

This person looks like they are in a high school hallway so they are probably a teenager dressing up for Halloween and you think it's funny to compare them to Muslim terrorists? Terrorists that mostly kill OTHER Muslims? Fuck that. Let this kid have fun. #islamophobia #islamophobe #antiislam #terrorism #xenophobia #racist #racism
