Israel has begun it’s campaign in launching the biggest ground assault on Gaza in more than 5 years.
The people of Gaza have absolutely no chance at this point. Israel will do anything to wipe Gaza off the planet. WE MUST TAKE ACTION. BOOST

I've never been called nigger irl

I almost got called a nigger by a cop in DC. Almost, meaning it almost slipped, but replaced it with “thug”
this white boy called my mom a nigger in our…
i’ve been called nigger to my face a handful of times. it slaps.
I was called “BLACK” once by a non-anglo white man whilst going through an apple store in the middle of Beijing: that, considering the fact he wasn’t fluent in english and that he did not know I existed until we crossed one another randomly on the other side of the globe, let me know he intended to offend me, i.e. to call me a nigger. I’ve also been directly referred to as nigger (by minors, old people, university students…) but this episode in particular stands out the most in my memory for the blunt leap that racist ass took over the many chasms of translation and the copious amounts of km he had to fly through from wherever the fuck he oozed out of this earth and shout at me “Blak!”, like it was something he just had to cross out his shit-to-do-on-a-foreign-comunist-country-I-claim-as-my-backyard-based-on-the-colonial-residue-from-centuries-of-ridiculing-compacting-shreading-and-dismissing-oriental-cultures-and-systems-of-believe-‘fore-I-die-privilledged-white-and-racist list.

“DOWNTOWN” is an unisex proposal for the upcoming Fall / Winter 2014-2015 by Selim Somavilla. A collection of contrasts, which it usually does normally. Used warm fabrics such as wool, silk or leather, which abut artificial tissues, such as polyester fabric technology or imitations of animal hair. In this case, the diamond and spike are taking important figures. The pattern and color are two strengths of the proposal. How combined creates an atmosphere that once again takes us to a very personal universe

I just want space! Why won’t enough ever surround me?!
People often think of fire as a destructive force, and it can be. But fire also rejuvenates the land. Many grasses have evolved root systems that survive fires so they can be renewed, and some trees and other plants have seeds that only germinate after a fire has come through. Plus fires clean out old dead wood and other debris, making it easier for fresh plant life to grow.

THE DARK SIDE OF DREAMS
In the late 1960’s, photographer Arthur Tress began a series of photographs that were inspired by the dreams of children. Tress had each child he approached tell him about a prominent dream of theirs which Tress would then artistically re-create and photograph with the child as the main subject.
I REALLY love this set. Disturbing.
