Ole Olson58,624It has come to light that Google has started funding and supporting some of the most vile right wing extremist collectives and corporate front groups in America. Join us by changing your avatar and boycotting every single Google service for one day in protest.  *On Wednesday, December 11th make a serious attempt to not use anything Google.* No Google Searches.

No Google Books. No Google Shopping. Nothing.  (Android is immune since it is Open Source).  If nothing else, just think of this as a challenge to see if you are able to spend a day on the internet without using a single Google product or service or just take the day off and enjoy the real world for a change.  _Google, many of us are your most loyal users, and we love the technical direction everything is heading by rolling all services into Google+_ but it must be understood in no uncertain terms that we vehemently disagree with your decision to start to fund proto-fascist, right wing extremist, anti-environmental, anti-worker, and anti-science shock fronts like: •ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) •American Conservative Union •Americans for Tax Reform •CATO Institute •Federalist Society •George Mason University Law School Law and Economics Center •Heritage Action •Mercatus Center •National Taxpayers Union •R Street Institute •Texas Public Policy Foundation ________________________________________________ *More information:* Don’t Be Evil?

Link to my comment on Paul Krugman's op-ed: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/02/opinion/the-diabetic-economy.html?ref=opinion&comments#permid=18392731

In a reply to myself I link to an interview given by Joseph Stiglitz in The Atlantic. I HIGHLY recommend reading it to contrast and compare with Krugman's op-ed.

Tamir Rice was a 12-year-old boy from Cleveland, Ohio, gallivanting in a park, as children are wont to do. He was playing with a toy gun. In America, it’s customary to sell replicas of lethal weapons to children for recreation. Violence is the way of life here. It’s the favorite pastime and chief export. It’s the thing that distinguishes our art, culture, and language from any other in the world. So it’s not unusual that Tamir had a toy gun and was playing with it in a playground. The problem was, however, that Tamir was black. And even a wallet in the hands of a black person scares white people. Shit, even sleeping black people terrify white people.

But I digress.

Tamir was frolicking, playing an imaginary game of cops and robbers or something, blissfully unaware.

That’s when a Concerned Neighbor saw him.

Terrible, terrible news, fam:

" A 19-year-old Michigan mother who was one of the first to file lawsuits on behalf of the thousands of children poisoned by water in Flint was found shot to death this week.

The body of Sasha Bell was discovered Tuesday night at Ridgecrest Village Townhouses in Flint, authorities said. The body of a second woman, Sacorya Reed, was also found in the home.

Cops have not made any arrests or determined a motive."

How about assassination by the government of the United States?

Because that's precisely what it sounds like to me.

I believe this young woman was a victim of the war America has declared against black people since day one.

Rest in peace, Ms. Bell. May the truth be revealed and justice be swift.

"I also understand that most people are not upset when [Li'l] Kim and people like her take drastic steps to look like the light. bright beauty queens we worship at the expense of dark-skinned black women, but that, in all of their efforts to look exactly as we wish them too look, that they failed.

Shave off the sides of your nose, but not so much that you look unnatural.

Lighten your skin, but avoid all of the harmful side effects of chemical skin lightening and make sure you get a Rihanna skin tone, because if you fuck up and end up with the Vybz Kartel we'll never let you live it down.

Add mountains of weave, but only if it mimics the hair of a mixed race woman, not a eastern European one because that's going 'too far.'
Add and subtract body parts, but don't be too drastic so that we might be able to pretend it's natural.

Wouldn't want to be greedy in your conformity to white supremacist beauty standards, right?

We are more upset with the limits of modern plastic surgery procedures than anything else."

- Saidah Green on the rigorous and exacting viciousness of white supremacist and patriarchal brainwashing.___

Triggers and remembrances of assault resonate—like visions, premonitions, and psychic dreams—decades after the seven-year-old was told to suck his father’s penis or forty years after the sixteen-year-old Oprah was raped and impregnated by a family member. Sexual violence alters the psychic capacity for survivors to look at and to their families, communities, and churches the same. When these violations take place within or with proximity to the Black church, the church is no longer safe and one must question if it ever was. Like murderers, church people and the harm-doers they protect wear the blood of child survivors on their saintly hands even as they wear the holiest of winter whites.

That’s hell.”

"Obama seems to get a little uppity, respectable, and condescending when he’s talking to or about black people. It might be just me, but when he does that, the White House starts feeling like the Big House and black communities begin to feel like the field.

Sometimes, when he’s talking to us, it seems as though he’s not really talking to us. It’s like he’s talking past us to the white people behind us; the one surveilling us and applauding him for 'getting us together'; like he get to say to us what they don’t get to say to us without appearing racist.

It’s as though when Negroes get a little money, power or prestige, they suddenly start to think white supremacists have a point."

"Black historians of racism have done a great job of talking about the emergence of race and racialization in efforts to justify slavery and Jim Crow, and so on. They have discussed how whiteness still structures so much of our political, economic, and culture life. But the fundamental role of violence against children is missing.

So we must ask: How would these interrogations of whiteness, historically and contemporary, change if violence against children was recognized as a major factor? There are libraries full of work on how science refined racism in the 18th and 19th centuries. That has structured our understanding of modern racism. But there is nothing yet on violence against children. How would our understanding of modern racism shift if it were recognized?

But there is nothing yet on violence against children. How would our understanding of modern racism shift if it were recognized?

And what about the role of black feminist writers and scholars? How has their silence on violence against black children, especially violence committed by black women, become complicit in perpetuating cycles of generational violence and trauma in black communities?

Don’t get me wrong, black feminist work has (rightly so) become the cornerstone of thinking for a whole host of radical emancipatory work, including postcolonial and Indigenous de-colonial thought, yet this entails that these disciplines have inherited the structural erasure of violence against children."

BREAKING NEWS:

I'm conflicted about this.

On the one end, I get how this might be symbolically important.
But I don't think this is a fitting tribute to Harriet Tubman, given how the American dollar is blood money and represents a historical and contemporary practice of colonialism, immorality, and death.
Better to knock down the Statue of Liberty and put up a Harriet Tubman statue made of onyx. Chains broken, fist raised, scarf knotted, and everything.

But this money shit feels off to me. Contradictory, duplicitous, and slick, even.

I think this actions ensures that Tubman's true message of liberation will be commodified, neutralized, and subsumed for the purpose of maintaining the status quo.

As horrible as this bathroom legislation is in #NC , the larger issue, as identified by Thomas Edsall, applies in many other states. The trouble is that we forget or get excited and show up only in half the places we need to.

“As I sit in my bed and begin to type (beds are my favorite typing places), there is a part of me that says,Don’t write this article.
There is a part of me that still resonates deeply with the fear and shame that surround the topics of abuse and intimate partner violence – the taboo that most communities have around talking not just about the fact that people experience rape and abuse, but that people we know and care about might be rapists and abusers.
Perhaps most secret and shameful of all is the fear that we, ourselves, are or have been abusive – the fear that we could be those villains, those monsters in the night.
Nobody wants to be ‘an abuser.’ No one wants to admit that they have hurt someone, especially when so many of us have been hurt ourselves.
But the truth is that abusers and survivors of abuse do not exist, and have never existed, in a dichotomy: Sometimes, hurt people hurt people. In this rape culture we live in, sometimes it can be hard to tell the difference between the hurt you are experiencing and the hurt you are causing someone else.
Seven years ago, when I first started training as support worker for survivors of intimate partner violence, I was sitting in a training workshop when someone asked what our organization’s policy was on taking requests for support from people who were abusing their partners and wanted help stopping.
The answer was brusque and immediate: 'We don’t work with abusers. Period.’
Fair enough, I thought. After all, an organization created to support survivors of rape and abuse should center survivors, not the people who hurt them. The only problem was, I wondered, What happens when people are both survivors and abusers? And if we don’t work with abusers, who does?
Note: I am not, in this article, talking about whether or not a relationship can be 'mutually abusive.’ This is a conversation for another time. Rather, I am suggesting that people who are survivors in one relationship are capable of being abusive in previous or later relationships.
Seven years later, as a therapist who has worked with many individuals who are 'recovering’ or 'former’ abusers, I am still looking for the answers to those questions. The fact is that there are extremely few resources and organizations out there with the mandate, will, and/or knowledge to how to help people stop being abusive.
But doesn’t the feminist saying go, 'We shouldn’t be teaching people how not to get raped, we should be teaching people not to rape?’
And if so, doesn’t it follow that we shouldn’t only support people who have survived abuse, we should also support people in learning how not to abuse?
When we are able to admit that the capacity to harm lies within ourselves – within us all – we become capable of radically transforming the conversation around abuse and rape culture. We can go from simply reacting to abuse and punishing 'abusers’ to preventing abuse and healing our communities.
Because the revolution starts at home, as they say. The revolution starts in your house, in your own relationships, in your bedroom. The revolution starts in your heart.
The following is a nine-step guide to confronting the abuser in you, in me, in us all.”
-  Kai Cheng Thom, “9 Ways to Be Accountable When You’ve Been Abusive”

"Afrika Bambaataa was not just a hip-hop star when Hassan Campbell began hanging out at his Bronx apartment during the late 1980s -- he was also a father figure.

When Campbell was hungry, Bambaataa gave him a meal. When Campbell needed a place to stay because of troubles at home, Bambaataa gave him a bed. When Campbell needed money, Bambaataa gave him cash.

'He had the most fun house in the world,' recalled Campbell, 39. 'There were celebrities there, musicians, neighborhood heroes. It was the best place to be - and the worst place to be.'

'He had the most fun house in the world,' recalled Campbell, 39. 'There were celebrities there, musicians, neighborhood heroes. It was the best place to be - and the worst place to be.'

It was the worst place to be because Bambaataa sexually abused him numerous times when he was 12 and 13 years old, Campbell told the Daily News.

'He is a pervert,' Campbell added. 'He likes little boys.'"

"This is the white supremacist fantasy. This is the stereotype about black people and our endless forgiveness of the transgressions of white supremacists and anti-black racism that many white people secretly hope holds true.

This is, after all, what makes their transgressions possible. It’s the idea that it doesn’t matter what white people do to us, hundreds of years of propaganda assures them that our reaction will be Mammy or Uncle Remus. They hold this notion while simultaneously holding Thomas Jefferson’s fear that one transgression too many might reveal us to be Assata Shakur or Nat Turner.
