Quote
"I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged."

The world stands with Palestine.

You guys know I rarely reblog things. But this? This is powerful.

What terrifies me is that the very state borne out of one of the most disgusting atrocities in modern history is itself capable of reproducing the very same.

I’m sure the people of Palestine feel very much alone. And in their suffering they very much are. But in their spirit, they are not.

My prayers are with Palestine. Always have been, always will be.

Pirates fans on the way to the game. Pittsburgh, June 27, 2014.This photo was from a walk around downtown Pittsburgh organized by Doug Harper and the IVSA host committee. I’ll say this: Pittsburgh has done a nice job making usable space downtown. There were a lot of people on the streets, especially near the ballpark, of course. But there are many restaurants and cafes with outdoor seating and the lots of events happening to keep people downtown after 5PM.(Another great IVSA conference, too!)
