Kickstart a comic collection about awesome women

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 04:57:41 +0000

I was excited to see the proposal for Femme Magnifique, a comic anthology with “inspirational” stories about “powerful” mostly-American women. The name was frankly a turn-off for me (I don’t think of my self as very femme). I guess they were trying to make it appealing to a less-politicized audience, but I’m concerned that it’s pretty ...



On the willful ignorance of religious right voters

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 20:03:10 +0000

"The real problem is that rural Americans don't understand the causes of their own situations and fears and they have shown no interest in finding out. They don’t want to know why they feel the way they do or why they are struggling because they don’t want to admit it is in large part because of the choices they’ve made and the horrible things they’ve allowed themselves to believe."



Beautiful posters for resisting racism and bigotry

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 14:26:58 +0000

Thanks to the American Friends Service Committee for publishing these two wonderful posters for resisting racism and bigotry. AFSC is a great organization. I collaborated with them when I worked at the Fellowship of Reconciliation.   Driven by a desire to provide tools for schools and the larger community to create space for discussion and declare ...



RESIST

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 21:02:04 +0000

Bayard Rustin’s call for civil disobedience and direct action tells us that “the only weapon we have is our bodies and we have to tuck them in places so wheels don’t turn.” Even if it that’s not your jam, everyone has a role in creating a society where we divest from things that punish and invest in real community-based measures that keep us safe. It will take community organizers, cultural workers, farmers, caretakers and builders. Now is the time to go big; we have everything to gain. – Charlene Carruthers

Why I’m joining the Moral March on Raleigh

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 14:02:06 +0000

I have lived in North Carolina since I was two years old, and now I’m raising my son here. I have personally been from Murphy to Manteo (not all in one day!) and I truly love this state. I attended the very first HKonJ (Historic Thousands on Jones Street) 11 years ago, and almost all ...



Wake up! Democracy is on life support.

Mon, 30 Jan 2017 19:05:52 +0000

We’re not just facing a constitutional crisis. Diabolical mastermind Steve Bannon is laying the foundation for a total government takeover by Trump, Inc. Please read “Trial Balloon for a Coup?” by Yonatan Zunger for just the latest developments of this. If you still think we can fight back in midterm elections or 2020 you are intentionally avoiding ...



Ring the Alarm

I love Ursula Rucker's update on the classic dancehall tune. She brings the analysis and the dub! src="https://embed.spotify.com/?uri=spotify%3Atrack%3A2LdZz0mouMrAvpZh0wHhaK" width="300" height="380" frameborder="0">



Trump’s Lies Pave the Way for an Assault on Voting Rights

Thu, 26 Jan 2017 16:05:41 +0000

If the legitimacy of the government derives from the consent of the majority, then at some point, we will have to address this disjuncture between the popular will and our elected bodies. We should start with nonpartisan redistricting reforms, and a fresh look at the Electoral College. But Mr. Trump’s comments make the adoption of ...



Don’t negotiate with terrorists

Thu, 26 Jan 2017 13:28:37 +0000

What is up with these Democrats playing kickball at a gun fight? They are negotiating with themselves. Republicans are not playing, they’re burning our government down as fast as possible. They’re not compromising, not looking for common ground, not thinking about how they’d want the system to work if they were not in power. (This ...
