1. Recognise that it’s a feeling – and our moods go up and down. Shrug your shoulders, grit your teeth and choose to make it through the day. Nothing’s really wrong – and there is nothing wrong with you. It’s just the way you’re feeling – and our feelings usually…

CEMENT ECLIPSES @ CHIAPAS MEXICO

Artist Isaac Cordal (tumblr / facebook) - “With the simple act of miniaturization and thoughtful placement, Isaac Cordal magically expands the imagination of pedestrians finding his sculptures on the street. Cement Eclipses is a critical definition of our behavior as a social mass. The art work intends to catch the attention on our devalued relation with the nature through a critical look to the collateral effects of our evolution. With the master touch of a stage director, the figures are placed in locations that quickly open doors to other worlds. The scenes zoom in the routine tasks of the contemporary human being”.

Over 700 Jefferson County High School students are staging walkouts and protests over proposed changes to the Advanced Placement History curriculum. According to Colorado Public Radio:

Last week, a school board member proposed that advanced placement history classes be required to promote free enterprise and patriotism and be required to avoid classroom materials that encourage social strife or civil disobedience. Two high schools in Jefferson County closed Friday after dozens of teachers called in sick in protest.

According the online petition to be delivered to the School District:

Jeffco Public School Board has just proposed a change of curriculum stating that, “Materials should not encourage or condone civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the law. Instructional materials should present positive aspects of the United States and its heritage.”

This means that important parts of our history such as the Civil Rights Movement, Native American genocide, and slavery will not be taught in public schools. If these important lessons are not taught, children will not learn from them, and what will stop them from happening again? This is a severe form of censorship intended to keep the youth ignorant and easy to manipulate. I’m hoping to get enough signatures to prove that this is a public issue, so, please, if this is important to you, please sign. Do not let our youth grow up in ignorance; we all deserve the truth!

You can sign the petition here.

You can read more articles at The Denver Post, CBS Denver (with video), and Colorado Public Radio.

I see White folks still scared about being the minority here in the States, that they gotta erase all folks of color from the damn history books.

If I had not taken APUSH and AP World History I would not know half of the horrors that America has committed.

I would not know that Abraham Lincoln was a supporter of the colonization movement, or that the Emancipation Proclamation wasn’t NEARLY what people seem to think it was.

I would not know that America was so afraid of Communism that it purposefully overthrew DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED leaders of countries in order to assure that no communist or socialist policies were put into place that ENDANGERED AMERICAN CORPORATIONS.

I would not know that Republicans used to be “liberal” and that Democrats used to be the white supremacy party.

I would not understand the extent of the build up to the Civil War, and the argument over slavery that existed from the time of the country’s founding.

I would not know that coup d’etats in Guatamala, Iran, Cuba, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and so many other countries were the product of American espionage.

I would not know who W.E.B Du Bois, Booker T. Washington, or Marcus Garvey were or how diverse and divided the civil rights and abolitionists movements were.

I would not know that Americans at the time of the American Revolution were the best fed, best dressed, best housed, least taxed people on the planet and they still found reason complain.

wouldn’t know that socialist policies enforced by F.D.R. helped to bring this country out of the great depression, and I wouldn’t understand the relationship between the U.S. and communism.

wouldn’t know that Andrew Jackson completely ignored the Supreme Court’s ruling against the Indian Removal Act, thus marching thousands of Native Americans to their death.

Yes, I wouldn’t know all the awful things about this country that people try to brush under the rug, and I would probably be in a blissful and ignorant bubble, enjoying life as a middle class white kid.

But I also wouldn’t see how far we’ve come, and how much farther we have to go, and everything we need to change about this country to make it better and to fix our mistakes.

AP United States History is so important, because theres so little between us and what’s happened in the past, and if we can’t educate kids on what the past is, then don’t expect them to learn any lessons from it.  If we can’t understand where we come from then we have no idea where we can and will go.

THIS

WHERE IS THIS FROM ?

It’s from “la source des femmes”

IT’S TRUE.

THERE IS NOTHING IN THE QU’RAN THAT SAYS WOMEN’S SOLE PURPOSE IS FOR OBEYING AND PROCREATING.

We are allowed to inherit and own property and businesses, and we are allowed to CHOOSE our husbands instead of having them foisted upon us in arranged marriages. WE ARE ALSO ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN COMBAT.

I’ve read the Qu’ran COVER TO COVER and there’s nothing God says about women being LESS than men. In fact, God IMPLORES men to treat women as equals. Probably because God knew men have a tendency to foul things up and has to remind them that WOMEN ARE ALSO PRECIOUS CREATIONS OF HIS DIVINE WILL.

-huffs and puffs-

Sorry. I was in my feelings. But this touches my nerves a lot when people misinterpret Islam as some misogynistic religion. Nothing could be further from the truth.
