The notion that you can invade the country of another people, kill them, mine the waters, burn the earth, and then claim equal rights of self-defense if and when the indigenous survivors retaliate derives from a mentality so hideous, so self-absorbed, as to stagger my mind, completely.

—June Jordan, “Beyond Apocalypse Now” (1980), in Civil Wars

In the theatre that I was used to in school and colleges and in amateur circles, the actors rehearsed more or less in secrecy and then sprung their finished perfection on an unsuspecting audience who were of course surprised into envious admiration: oh, what perfection, what talent, what inspired gifts—I certainly could never do such a thing! Such a theatre is part of the general bourgeois education system which practices education as a process of weakening people, of making them feel they cannot do this or that—oh, it must take such brains!—In other words education as a means of mystifying knowledge and hence reality.

—Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o, “The Language of African Literature”, in Decolonising the Mind: The Politics of Language in African Literature

Anonymous said: I'm a little confused (I haven't slept in over 24hrs - I might just be too tired) the grand jury has until January to decide if they will CHARGE Darren Wilson, not CONVICT? Or they have until January to convict? Please tell me it's convict. Because regardless of your 'views' on his guilt, he needs to be charged and then a jury should decide on his guilt if he doesn't take a plea deal. Charging is a no brainer, he killed someone and it needs a criminal investigation.

justice4mikebrown:

The grand jury now has until January 7, 2015 to decide whether or not to charge Darren Wilson with the murder of Mike Brown. They can make a decision soon than that though.

Here’s some more info on the grand jury:

Raven tells an old man all about his day and then when the man laughs the bird LAUGHS WITH HIM, which is a good way to relieve stress

this is easily the most important event in cinema history
