Rachael and I have spent a LOT of time in cars together lately

RW: My grandfather would drive his suburban with a martini in his hand.
MH: WOT THAT IS AMAZING. How did he not spill it?
RW: It wasn't...in a martini glass, it was in a regular glass. That's why it was so trashy!
MH: (genuinely confused that you can call it a martini if it's not in a martini glass) so then..
RW: It was ridiculous!
MH: It just would have been so cool with the martini glass
RW: true
MH: do you see what my life is? I lived and died and we arent even over the bridge yet (OK I didn't say it this cleverly but along these lines)

"Barbarians? Precisely. We affirm this in order to introduce a new, positive notion of barbarism…."

“Barbarians? Precisely. We affirm this in order to introduce a new, positive notion of barbarism. What does the poverty of experience oblige the barbarian to do? To begin anew, to begin from the new.”

Doreen Lawrence: Why she kicks ass

  • Activist, Writer, Mother
  • Mother of Stephen Lawrence; a black teenager who was murdered in London (UK) at the age of 18 in a brutal racial attack in 1993
  • Doreen cited the institutional racism of the Metropolitan Police in light of the treatment of her son’s case. She brought to light the unprofessionalism and incompetence shown by the police that were intrinsically linked to racist presumptions in relation to Stephen.
  • In 1999, after years of campaigning, and garnering the support of many in the community, the media and politics, a wide-ranging judicial inquiry into the circumstances of Stephen’s death was established, rousing great interest in the Metropolitan Police’s attitude towards PoC. 
  • She helped overturn double jeopardy law in the UK, allowing Stephen’s case to go to trial again and leading to the subsequent imprisonment of two of Stephen’s five attackers; David Norris and Gary Dobson.
  • Doreen Lawrence continues to campaign for justice for her son as well as for other victims of racist crime. She has worked to secure further reforms of the police service.
  • She also founded the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, a charity of a multifarious nature and great community value that started out as means to help underpriveleged aspiring architects, as Stephen dreamt of becoming one himself. 
  • She is a member of both the board and the council of a human rights organisation called Liberty, and is also  a patron of hate crime charity Stop Hate UK.
  • Though Lawrence has recieved much praise and success for her charitable work and campaigning, she often stresses that she would give it all up to have her son back.

I remember this case—the police assumed the parents would be uneducated and docile and this heartbroken woman kicked their asses.
