When was the last time white feminists were mad that black men in the US make 74¢ on the white man’s dollar?

I guess around the same time as white Occupiers were outraged about a white unemployment rate that is high but still less than half the black unemployment rate i.e. never.

I’m going through labor statistics and making posters. Ready to blow up some one dimensional bullshit.

can you please make them reblogable?

Like what do you do when shit happens and how do you respond in  a way that allows us to honor that, heal, move through it , and grow in a way that just deepens resiliency.

Marina Abramović, Rhythm 0, 1974

To test the limits of the relationship between performer and audience, Abramović developed one of her most challenging (and best-known) performances. She assigned a passive role to herself, with the public being the force which would act on her.

Abramović had placed upon a table 72 objects that people were allowed to use (a sign informed them) in any way that they chose. Some of these were objects that could give pleasure, while others could be wielded to inflict pain, or to harm her. Among them were a rose, a feather, honey, a whip, scissors, a scalpel, a gun and a single bullet. For six hours the artist allowed the audience members to manipulate her body and actions.

Initially, members of the audience reacted with caution and modesty, but as time passed (and the artist remained impassive) people began to act more aggressively. As Abramović described it later:

“What I learned was that… if you leave it up to the audience, they can kill you.” … “I felt really violated: they cut up my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the audience. Everyone ran away, to escape an actual confrontation.

Spanish Sex Workers Punishing Banks By Withholding Sex From Employees

Spanish Sex Workers Punishing Banks By Withholding Sex From Employees:

pull-out:

Members of the trade association for high-class escorts in Spain have stopped having sex with bank employees until they start providing credit to Spanish families and small businesses, according to RT. The union got the idea for the protest after one escort was able to convince a bank employee to grant a loan simply by saying she would stop her services until he “fulfills his responsibility to society.”
