this is great and all but lets observe the fact that the moment a WHITE journalist is threatened, action is taken…while Michael Brown’s murderer still walks freely and the police officers threatening the lives of black people/hitting them with tear gas and rubber bullets are still on the clock
the media being threatened is the best thing that could have happened to white America because now they can stop caring about the majority Black citizens of Ferguson and start focusing on the white people being hurt
We are enjoying the work of Iranian artist Afarin Sajedi this morning. Sajedi has had exhibitions across Iran and also taught at Tehran Azad University and Tehran University. Her paintings and sketches of women are fascinating and slightly surreal, but gracefully honest.
