I love how all these little Internet white kids are getting offended on the Native Americans behalf when the Comache tribe has already fucking approved of Johnny Depp portrayal of Tonto since they adopted him into their culture. But yes,…
So to the students at Dartmouth—and to the rest of us involved in protest politics—when “allies” chastise you for choosing a too public venue for protest, or for behaving in a manner they call obnoxious or (that favorite slur of the moderate) alienating, remember that being courteous and being effective aren’t necessarily compatible. You know what’s a graver sin than being rude? Not using every tool at your disposal to fight for what’s right.

There are more African-Americans on probation, parole, or in prison today than were slaves in 1850. It is not a crisis of crime, it is a crisis of people being left behind. For this week’s Newsweek, President Obama’s former spiritual advisor, Joshua DuBois, writes, ‘The Fight for Black Men.’
“If we’re honest,” DuBois writes, “we’ll have to admit that when one single group of people is conspicuously left behind, it never bodes well for society as a whole. In many ways, black men in America are a walking gut check; we learn from them a lot about ourselves, how far we’ve really come as a country, and how much further we have to go.”
A time of celestial strength approaches.

The feeling of having unknowingly escaped death is the second eeriest feeling I’ve ever felt. The first is the the sensation that several places you stayed in don’t exist anymore.
