laughingsquid:

Superhero Style Statue of Soviet Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin

It’s very Atompunk and Futuristic.

If I wasn’t already committed to my Sputnik tattoo, this could work.

"The point is not that white activists, in order to be anti-racist, need to uncritically support any…"

“The point is not that white activists, in order to be anti-racist, need to uncritically support any Asian, Latin@, indigenous, or black resistance group that pops up. However, there is a Eurocentric universalism in the idea that we are all part of the same homogeneous struggle and white people at the heart of the Empire can tell people of color and people in the (neo)colonies the best way to resist. The people most affected by a system of oppression should be at the forefront of the struggle against that particular oppression, yet pacifism again and again produces organizations and movements of white people illuminating the path and leading the way to save brown people, because the imperative of nonviolence overrides the basic respect of trusting people to liberate themselves. Whenever white pacifists concern themselves with a cause that affects people of color, and resisters among the affected people of color do not conform to the particular definition of nonviolence in use, the white activists place themselves as the teachers and guides, creating a dynamic that is remarkably colonial. Of course, this is largely a function of whiteness (a socially constructed worldview taught diffusively to all people identified by society as “white”). Militant white activists can and do incur similar problems when they disrespect allies of color by dictating the appropriate, orthodox method of struggle.”

I think the only thing that will soothe my spirit at this point is a drink at Rolf’s, where they take celebrating seriously. Also, a bunch of old Broadway theater folks are always there for happy hour. The healing and the sparkling begin tonight!
