isn’t it interesting
how whenever lyrics by artists like Nicki Minaj, Beyonce and M.I.A are used on photo sets and gif sets and graphics of white women
it’s alway signifying some kind of Otherness or rebel status: white women who r warriors like Jennifer…
What would it be like if the U.S. was war torn like Syria? A new video by international NGO Save the Children imagines just that, through the eyes of a young girl:
The disturbing video features shots of the girl as she goes about her normal life over the course of a year. The video begins and ends with the child celebrating her birthday. Between shots, we see how her life changes dramatically as war ravages her country.
in 2014, its going to be 100 years since WWI began
how long until it ends? fuck this war
Indigenous activist and writer Jacqueline Keeler came up with hashtag #NotYourTonto to respond to the nomination. Keeler, who had also organized the hashtag #NotYourMascot to protest the Washington Redskins during the Super Bowl, teamed up with fellow indigenous activist Ethan Keller to organize a Facebook event and Twitterstorm starting the night of March 2. The National Congress of American Indians and EONM (Eradicating Offensive Native Mascotry) also signed on to help promote the movement.
Omar (2013) was Palestine’s entry for Best Foreign Language Film at this year’s Oscars and finished as one of the five finalists.
“All the heads of the departments were Palestinians. Not all of them had experience but we all worked so hard to make a quality movie, and I think we proved we can do a high quality movie without the money or talent of the West. If I’m proud of anything it’s that this film was made by Palestinians with Palestinian money. I’m really proud of that. The non-Palestinians had no influence on the artistic quality or the quality of the movie.” — Hany Abu-Assad, Director
“We have to take ownership of our own talent,” added Waleed Zuaiter, one of the leading actors.
The film was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, where it won the Jury Prize, and was shown at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
Uh, did this guy admit to committing fraud/perjury?
Doesn’t matter what box you mark on financial aid forms. The race/ethnicity markers are just for statistical purposes, you don’t get any money or any discounts from that. Any time you get any aid specifically intended for NDNs, there’s a vetting process in which you either have to provide your enrollment number or proof of direct lineage to an immediate family member who is enrolled (although I think some financial aid programs will let you claim an enrolled grandparent)
If it were as easy as just ticking off a box, there’d be no money left in Indigenous education funds for actual NDN people
Looks like just another White dude spreading fabrications about how educational aid for Indigenous people works to me
i also find this statement interesting in light of the Asians not marking their race for fear of being rejected
like fucking white ppl for this ridiculous bullshit.
thinking that just by checking a box they can receive all that magical money that Indigenous people get (not only does is this a harmful myth, but fuck srsly?)
while also creating a system where they think too many asians are in college and trying to cap enrollment.
And the funniest (ie: most terrible and ironic) thing about that is that Asian people aren’t even the people who have the most enrollment in college in the US.
Its BLACK WOMEN. hahahahahahahahahahahah lawd, they never saw us coming.
