    If this cartoon makes you uncomfortable, it should. Egyptian cartoonist Doaa Eladl — never one to shy away from tough issues — is commenting on genital mutilation.

    From the archives: An interview and profile of Eladl from The World’s Carol Hills.

    90-year-old Holocaust survivor Hedy Epstein arrested for peacefully protesting today in Ferguson. You can help get her and others out (@AwkwardDuck, @GeekNStereo, and some I’m less familiar with, Twitter-wise) by donating to #OperationHelpOrHush. They are not only raising money to bail out peaceful protestors, but they use all funds to help the community and bring them food, water, medical aid, gas masks, and other equipment to help them not die during this terrible time. Follow @SheSeauxSaditty for more info.

    "We don’t like pictures like this. It is not good to deduce an entire country to the image of a person reaching out for food. It is not good for people to see us like this, and it is not good for us to see ourselves like this. This gives us no dignity. We don’t want to be shown as a country of people waiting for someone to bring us food. Congo has an incredible amount of farmland. An incredible amount of resources. Yes, we have a lot of problems. But food is not what we are reaching for. We need investment. We need the means to develop ourselves." 

    (Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo)

    they keep those images out in the public sphere because white supremacy around the world requires that africans (and african americans by extension) be seen as lonely savages in need of the saving hand and help of whiteness. it’s classic propaganda. a tool used to great affect for mental colonization.

    Supermodel Ataui Deng has been missing for 10 days, y’all. Had it not been for Roblé’s post, I wouldn’t have heard anything. 10 Days and NOTHING in the media?

    *sigh*

    If you have seen her or know anything concerning her disappearance, email FindAtaui@gmail.com

    Again, I feel this begs to be said again:

    Black.
    Lives.
    Matter.

    They just found her, Alive, and in a hospital.

    Five Myths About Crime in Black America—and the Statistical Truths

    In the wake of Trayvon Martin’s death [and Renisha McBride and Jonathan Ferrell], we’ve seen a lot of discussion of the larger societal issues that play into how and when people are perceived as criminals. There were hoodies, there were marches, and there were frank talks from parent to child about how to minimize the danger of being a young person of color. On the other side, there were justifications of George Zimmerman’s actions: a smear campaign against Martin’s character, and plenty of writers explaining that statistically, blacks are simply more dangerous to be around.

    That framing ignores the realities behind the numbers. Here are five myths about crime and people of color.
