Do you know what makes the prison disappear? Every deep, genuine affection. Being friends, being brothers, loving, that is what opens the prison, with supreme power, by some magic force. Without these one stays dead. But whenever affection is revived, there life revives.

Vincent van Gogh (via quietlotus)

True solidarity is rooted in this affection, this real mutual care, this love of our fellows.  So long as it’s just a political principle then in practice we continue to harm each other rather than doing the work we’re intending to do - because it’s instrumentalising others, rather than actually mutually aiding.

DIY  Potion and Spell Book Tutorial from Better After. This is a really good tutorial using plastic toys, glue gun, cardstock and paper towels. This FIY is based on a tutorial by SEEING THINGS - my favorite Halloween Blog that had great printables and tutorials and is now DEAD & GONE. This is why if I see a printable I like, I don’t wait unitl later to download it.

~This would also be a nice tutorial for an actual spell book instead of just a decoration.

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.

Liberals are like “it’s fine if you want every child in public school to recite a nationalist oath in unison while facing the country’s flag every day but don’t put ‘under God’ in it that’s fucked up”

a lot of ppl seem confused on what cultural appropriation is so lemme break it down

IT IS NOT: enjoying food from another culture, enjoying music from another culture, learning about another culture, or learning another language

IT IS: using another culture as a costume, wearing religious articles as accessories when you are not a follower of that religion, using a race as a mascot, disrespecting religious or cultural practices. 

Ehhhh provided that if you do the things on list one, you do them in a way that centers members of that culture and at the very least doesn’t obstruct their continuing access to their own stuff.

Like let’s talk “enjoying” quinoa and what it’s doing to food accessibility and ecosystems in the Andes.
