I love to see my friends using their art to express their values… So proud to call this guy my friend! His art work never ceases to amaze me :-)
Solitary confinement opponents have filed a lawsuit hoping to get state officials to release thousands of documents about the use of
CAPE TOWN - Some inmates from Pollsmoor prison are turning to the stage for rehabilitation. They have spent six months in an intensive theatre-training programme. And they will be performing at the Artscape Theatre from Thursday.
The programme is based on a project used in Norwegian prisons to help rehabilitate and reintegrate offenders into society.
They may be convicted criminals, but these offenders are trying to right the wrongs of their past through creative expression.
EEEEEHHHH!!!! This is awesome!!!!!
Black people I know we like to make excuses for our white friends, lovers, co-workers Etc… “They not all that bad, you can’t judge all of them, my friend back in 5th grade wasn’t racist”
For the record ALL white people benefit from white privilege and white supremacy whether they are “the coolest” person or not. Whether they want to be racist or not not they benefit from your oppression. Most White people aren’t willing to give up that privilege. When shit goes down in the black community do these cool “white people” come out to protest injustices done to black people? Nah they act like they don’t see that shit. “That’s none of their business”
The Majority of White America is racist as fuck still in 2014. That’s the reality and if you don’t realize that as a black person you are a special kind of naive. States like Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania, Colorado,Kentucky, Virginia, Tennessee, Michigan,Alabama shit the whole F”ckin country is filled with ignorant poor white folks willing to kill you children for stepping on their property or playing loud music.
Where are all the humanitarians when innocent black folks are killed and imprisoned? When shit goes down it becomes only “our problem”. Every now and then you’ll find a few “good-hearted” white people who are real but they do not speak for the majority. Neither should we credit the majority for a few to none actions. Peace

If talking to my dad is so hard because its like talking to myself and we are both too uncompromising, or if its because suddenly English becomes two languages void of all translational properties….
Either way… *eye roll* #do you think he’ll notice if i walk out of the room while he is talking?
There is no penalty for killing, imprisoning , raping, mocking, stealing from or disrespecting black people.
We just gonna get shake our heads or pray about, right?
People of the African Diaspora are the most exploited people on earth.
Cops still killing us at alarming rates , beating innocent Black Women, and Children. Judges Locking Black men up like crazy for petty crimes.
No matter how Blatant the celebs like Donald Sterling and Justin Bieber may show how racist they are the masses of Black People are apologizing for them , making excuses, or ignoring it.
In 2014 what does it take to prove ones racist, Goddamn if video aint enough idk what can.
What happen to the revolutionary spirit? Why aren’t you more upset? Peace

And then there are those moments when a small footprint reconnects me with a best friend from my high school theatre department, and I think “okay, sometimes it is pretty cool my face appears when you Google my name.” :)
It is refreshing to know that my lack of Facebook and inability to communicate changing contact information has not deterred possibilities of staying connected, and reconnecting with those who are immensely important to me.
Today is a WIN!
White people didn’t build this nation alone. We did it on the backs of the nameless enslaved; from the start our economy depended on exploitation and criminal maltreatment of enslaved peoples. We stole the land after disease ravaged the tribes living on it and took slaves from another continent…
