I really just can’t stress this enough, so please contact me if you are in Southern Florida and interested in participating in a public discussion group. In order for any great democratic society to be successful, it requires that the ordinary citizenry remains engaged in political policy. You can stay abreast on current issues and also network. Events are catered and we love to see our participants happy. We also offer Spanish language discussion groups, and English-Spanish (dual) language discussion groups in addition to plain, old English. Email me for more details on when the next discussion group is happening near you!

Ian Brown in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, doing magic while reading Stephen Hawking’s ‘A Brief History of Time’, has to be one of the greatest moments in cinematic history.
I’m reblogging this because Ian is a friend of mine.
Don’t you dare ever tell me skin color doesn’t matter. It does.
Wonder what year this was, and how many times this happened, cause you know this wasn’t the only time it happened.
White sociopathy in full effect.
This is from September of 1955. Those kids are probably still alive. Damn.
But I thought mixed babies got rid of racism. (sarcasm)
I would like to state for the record that this happened more than you probably think during that time period, and a little later.
My family wouldn’t be the same today if not for the good empire state of New York and the generosity of some pretty-fucking-hippy-trippy-ass parents who gave absolutely no fucks. (Also, quietly, shout out to those honest white women that at least returned black babies to families that would love them properly.) Racism sucks.
Check the precedents for NY if you want the story.
On Christmas day 1837, 176 years ago, the Africans and Native Americans who formed Florida’s Seminole Nation defeated a vastly superior U.S. invading army bent on cracking this early rainbow coalition and returning the Africans to slavery. The Seminole victory stands as a milestone in the march of American liberty. Though it reads like a Hollywood thriller, this amazing story has yet to capture public attention. It is absent from most school textbooks and social studies courses, Hollywood movies, and TV.
