|Sister Souljah:||You’re making a moral appeal to a country that doesn’t have a moral conscience. The question becomes: that when white people feel serious and angry and upset about abortion, they come out in the thousands up to the millions to say, “This is what we believe about abortion.”|
|Where is the white outcry against white racism that murders African people all around this entire globe? It doesn’t exist. So who are these “white good people”? I want to meet them! I want to see them!|
|Cornell West:||I know a few, but Sista…|
|Sister Souljah:||A few is not enough-|
|Cornell West:||But that might be all we can get|
|Sister Souljah:||Oh no, no. And guess what? I don’t work with “all I can get” […] listen you have to have some confidence in the power of African people amongst ourselves to establish a foundation[…] And you (Cornell West) may have a program, Mr. Brown may have a program. But what we got to talk about is an American government that traps millions of African people who don’t go to your program, don’t go to Brown’s program. Millions of African people not only here but all around the world. And if we are not honest enough to say who are our friends, who are our enemies, to know what a friend is, to know what an enemy is. We will constantly be trying to get into people’s parties, to shake our butts with them, to get them to like us. And that’s not the question, the question is: What can we build amongst ourselves to secure ourselves from our enemies so that we can be able to survive into the future.|
- Do not forget Michael Brown
- Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
- Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
- Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
- Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
- Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
- Do not forget Ferguson
My name is Frank Santoro.
Have you ever thought about taking “comic book lessons”? Maybe you already know how to draw a comic book and would like to just brush up on your composition skills. Maybe you have never drawn a comic book before but always wish you had. Perhaps there is someone close to you who dreams of drawing comics?
Well, the Santoro Correspondence Course for Comic Book Makers may be just perfect for you! I will guide you through the steps necessary to complete your own original 16 page comic book in a matter of weeks. Learn the tricks of the trade from a working cartoonist! I have been doing this correspondence course for three years now and the ”learn from home” method of teaching comics yields real results! (please take a moment to read the student testimonials that follow)
Everyone in Denmark sort of laughs at me everywhere I go and this is how I feel like reacting to them (insert smiley face icon here)
Found this absolutely beautiful children’s book from France in an antique store in VT… $125 so I had to leave it there, but I took a few crappy pictures to remember it by. It’s the work of Louis-Maurice Boutet de Monvel, a late 19th century/early 20th century illustrator. I don’t know much about him, I’m sure better read people than me recognize the band immediately. Here’s his wikipedia page for those me ignorant types, like me.
