whenever white cooks on tv say “asian” it really pisses me off. what part of asia is your recipe from? malaysia? bhutan? japan? cambodia? y’all know 16 different french sauces but can’t name what kind of chinese/indian food you’re making.

Fun History Fact: The overwhelming majority of cowboys in the U.S. were Indigenous, Black, and/or Mexican persons. The omnipresent white cowboy is a Hollywood studio concoction meant to uphold the mythology of white masculinity.

Thank you.

I will always re-blog this

I don’t think I know anyone with this background, but maybe we can signal boost. One major thing the Ferguson organizers have been asking for specifically for several days is for service donations from mental health professionals with a background in trauma counseling, people of color would be preferable for obvious reasons. If you know someone who might be willing to either to go to Ferguson or do tele-sessions, please direct them to this form.

Yesterday’s tragic news about Robin Williams has me reflecting on the other notable people we’ve lost this year. One of the deaths that affected me most was Dr. Maya Angelou. Although I didn’t know her personally, her writing touched my soul.

As I’m in the process of launching and refining my multicultural emojis app called Iroc Emoticons, I made this short animation to honor her memory.

I hope you like it.
