I’m a black man and it’s time to be accountable. It’s always left to black women to do and say everything. I decided to make these an post them, where i live, and travel. I want to state that the language is of this area (chicagoland) an directed solely at young black men who live here so it maybe off putting to people not from here. with that said im not posting all of the fliers here. Feel free to save. print an post these at your convince. This is part of SEU Blackstorm project. More to come.. - Yumii

Deconstructing Masculinity & Manhood with Michael Kimmel @ Dartmouth College

YAAAAEEESSSSSSS

You know what I like, and feel is so important? That he doesn’t say “Men thinks those are THEIR positions”. He says “We think those are OUR positions.”

As a male feminist, he still doesn’t exclude himself from the group of men.

Damn.

Well said.

The Columbia senior has a lot of people helping her carry her mattress now

Emma Sulkowicz, the Columbia University student who has vowed to carry her mattress around campus until her alleged rapist is brought to justice, just had her load lightened in a big way.
The Columbia Spectator reports that a contingent of students calling themselves “Carry the Weight Together” has stepped up to aid Sulkowicz with her “Mattress Performance/Carry That Weight” project. On their website, Barnard College senior Allie Rickard writes, “I immediately noticed a tangible and meaningful way I, along with any other member of our community, could get involved on a daily basis in ending sexual violence and rape culture at our university. Let’s help Emma carry her mattress every day.” 
But has the school reached out to her?

This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like. Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour. This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York. This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary. Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little they’re earning by turning this mindless crank. A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day…at much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.

Argentina: doing it right. After passing a groundbreaking gender identity law on Wednesday, Argentina, which became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage, now leads the entire world when it comes to trans rights.
The new law, which was passed by 55-0 and is expected to be signed by president Cristina Fernandez, grants trans people the right to legally change their gender identity without having to get approval from doctors or judges–and, importantly, without having to change their bodies at all first. Not having a valid ID that matches your gender identity is a huge barrier to access to education, employment, health care, you name it. As Kalym Sori, an Argentinian trans man said, “This is why the law of identity is so important. It opens the door to the rest of our rights.”

Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.

We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.

No justice, no peace.

Capitalism is when an unarmed teenager gets gunned down in cold blood and one of the bigger media focuses is the looting of private industries

Capitalism is when a weapons industry manufacturing for the sake of profit and growth overproduces suprlus weapons that are then given to police departments to use on black communities
