I recently made the decision to create a quick mini animation in both Paint Tool Sai + Photoshop. It turned out pretty good, it definitely could be better, but I’m too tired to work on it any further. I also threw some text on top of the gif to show you what effects I used, plus animation thumbnails below it. Enjoy!
See You Tomorrow
White privilege is your history being taught as a core class and mine being taught as an elective.
please let them know.
white privilege is your history being taught as a core class, and mine being banned because it would promote "the overthrow of the U.S. government, foster racial resentment, and advocate ethnic solidarity."
In Ferguson, Still-Boarded Windows Signal Fears of More Trouble (Translation: Businesses in Ferguson are not replacing windows before grand jury decision is made.)
Quote of the week: “U.S. citizens have the shortest paid vacations in the world, unless you’re Darren Wilson and you get five weeks off after killing a teenager.” — Sarah Kendzior
Hawaii was first called the Sandwich Islands.
The earliest habitation supported by archaeological evidence dates to as early as 300 CE, whereas the 1778 arrival of British explorer James Cook was Hawaiʻi’s first documented contact with European explorers. Cook named the islands the “Sandwich Islands” in honor of his sponsor John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich.
Because things only exist when Europeans discover them smh
Halloween is right around the corner folks…
Parents of Trayvon Martin, Jordan Davis Share Their Loss at the United Nations
Sitting in meetings in the United Nation’s ornate Wilson Palace by the shores of Lake Geneva in the shadow of the Alps seems an odd place to discuss racial discrimination in the United States.
But the problems of racial discrimination quickly hit home at an event earlier this week that hosted the parents of Travon Martin and Jordan Davis, two unarmed young black men killed by armed white men claiming to be acting in self-defense. Made all the more powerful as it came on the heels of the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., their affecting and often harrowing testimony immediately erased the distance between Switzerland and the United States. It made the discrimination present and underscored the importance of the work being done here at the U.N.’s review of the U.S. record of racial discrimination.
YASSS!!! The world needs call the US out on its shit!!!
LABELS are for people that have been shat on and isolated their whole lives, and have been made to feel like they shouldn’t exist. LABELS are for people who want to finally say “oh my god, me too!” LABELS are for solidarity. LABELS are to band together with people like you. And just like with clothing, LABELS give you an idea of how you should care for the person they’re attached to.
"Labels are for clothes" is something said by someone who had never needed a label to be allowed to exist.
Going to cons is like the greatest, but it leaves me feeling equal parts insecure and inspired.
also, hello internet- i’ve missed you.
