I have these very deep feelings that white people who want to join black organizations are really just taking the escapist way to salve their consciences. By visibly hovering near us, they are “proving” that they are “with us.” But the hard truth is this isn’t helping to solve America’s racist problem. The Negroes aren’t the racists. Where the really sincere white people have got to do their “proving” of themselves is not among the black victims, but on the battle lines of where America’s racism really is - and that’s in their own home communities; America’s racism is among their own fellow whites. That’s where the sincere whites who really mean to accomplish something have got to work.

Let sincere whites go and teach non-violence to white people!

Fabian Oefner is bringing art and science together. In this eye-catching series of clips, Oefner makes sound waves visible by placing colorful crystals over a speaker and filming their movement. The result is poetic and more than a little trippy.

Some white people are so privileged, they expect sympathy for their guilt.

Still quite a bit left to do, but it’s really coming together! I like the colors in this dress so much more then my red and white version. I think it looks a lot less juvenile and way more magical. 

It’s made from organza and chiffon with a tulle overlay and $60 of fake flowers.

I have information about how I’m making it here! And a video about it here
