LISTEN THE FUCK UP CUZ THIS ONE IS REAL: Historical revisionism is the process of altering the facts or narrative around certain historical events/ figures in a way that favors a dominant group. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy has been heavily revised and exploited by white moderates in ways that accommodate their white supremacy and agenda to subdue rightfully angry black people. Historical revisionism is such an insidious process that it taints and corrupts the narratives of any figures and events that surround the target subject; hence the re-writing of Malcolm X as the antithesis of Martin Luther King Jr. The FACT of the matter is that Dr. King was JUST AS critical of American society as X was and did not seek assimilation but RADICAL RECONSTRUCTION. Though he refrained from endorsing physical violence, he understood Capitalism to be the debilitating and mobilizing force that upheld white supremacy. In a letter to Coretta Scott penned July 18, 1952 King self identifies as a Socialist. A SOCIALIST, PEOPLE!! 🐸🍵Further challenging his white-washed legacy as a token black was King’s diametric opposition to America’s Military Industrial complex in an age where pacifism was still regarded as anti-American. King advocated against the Vietnam war, consequently earning him the label of “communist” and compromising his national reputation as a respectable leader. THE TAKEWAY: When people quote MLK’s non-violent rhetoric to subdue rightfully angry Black people, they are engaging in racial violence and political suppression. MLK was not a cookie cutter token black whose thoughtful and complex politics can be reduced to convenient (often misinterpreted) single-line quotations. To honor his legacy we should not only seek to create a better more equitable future, but we should look back and correct our skewed/tampered perceptions of American history that play into the very systems and beliefs that he and other freedom fighters sought to overturn.
New Jersey has long been a leader in the solar energy industry. In 2017, the state was the fifth-largest producer of solar energy, and almost 75 percent of all its renewable energy production came from solar. Read our blog to learn more. https://thesolardigest.com/new-jersey-solar-incentives-2019/
Available Light Film Festival 2019 Woman at War (Kona fer í stríð) (Dir. Benedikt Erlingsson) - “From the opening scene—in which 50-ish Halla (Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir), choirmaster and stalwart of the community, uses a bow and arrow to destroy an electrical tower—you know you are in for a treat with this quirky, visually splendid work. Halla’s passionately enacted secret eco-warrior campaign against an energy corporation encroaching on Iceland’s impeccable landscape is decidedly at odds with her day-to-day life, doubly so now that she has received notice that the adoption she applied for some years back has been approved and a Ukrainian orphan is on the way. Can she reconcile motherhood and fighting the good fight, no matter the possible consequences of her crimes?” - VIFF In Icelandic, Spanish, English, Ukranian with English subtitles Sunday, February 10 at 7:30pm Yukon Arts Centre Thank you to Chinook Bookkeeping for sponsoring this screening! #womenatwar#women#activism#environmentalist#cinema#alff2019#availablelight#filmfestival#filmcommunity#filmlover#filmgeek
1/3 Mindfulness: the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something. * * Most people lack this trait. Something so simple, yet so difficult to act upon. It makes us cringe when people do not even acknowledge their consumption. Not recycling. Not watching what they throw out. or being...mindful of the Earth 🌎♾ #plasticpollution#endplastic#environmentalist#earthub#mindfulness
Came home to these books my dad ordered from @amazon 😱🤯 SO excited to try all the yummy #vegansoulfood !!!! @bryantterry It’s going slowwwwly but my dad is clearly still transitioning to the vegan lifestyle 🙌🏾💚🌱✨

Whatever your passion or calling is, be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem! For me, my art is about shining a light on the huge trash problem we have. By removing these items from our streets and beaches and making them a part of my artwork rather than a part of a landfill, I hope to make a difference!
farm to table... but what does that really mean? all food comes from some farm somewhere and ends up on your table. my visions for a sustainable and just food system are constantly evolving with my understanding of the world. right now, my ideals and visions revolve around permaculture, self sufficiency, local communities, food sovereignty, ethnobotany, and of course, veganism. i may sounds like a broken record, but i can never stress enough the importance of food choices. heath, communities, the environment, animals, social justice, climate change, social change, global inequalities, racism, feminism, mental health... within the food system there is so much room to choose abundance, love, and connection, over exploitation, suffering, and fear in the world today. what kind of world are you choosing? this beautiful jungle meal is from @fincatierra and i have oh so much to share about my time at this magical place and this whole trip. wishing you all good health and good food. x
Mercury the planet of communication, ideas and how we think moves into Aquarius on 24 January 2019. You will notice your thoughts speed up, ideas coming in hot and the ability to see things from a very different perspective – almost like your looking down on yourself and can see your life from an angle that allows you to see all your possible options. It may be harder to concentrate as you find yourself wanting to rebel and do something different. It’s a great time to listen to those ‘aha’ moments that will be coming to you (I suggest writing them down). As Aquarius is an air sign, you will feel more detached than usual and more in your intellect (if you feel ungrounded get out into nature). Stimulating conversations and topics about the future, technology, innovation, science, environment and the metaphysical are bound to crop up more than usual over the next few weeks. You will feel attracted to like-minded people even more around this time, and no doubt will be wanting to be around groups of friends more (good time to socialise). It’s a great time to be part of something with a great cause in your community (i.e. Rosa Parks being the Aquarian model). Look to your Natal chart to the house ruled by Aquarius to get a deeper understanding of how this placement will affect your mind over the next few weeks.

Squirrels rely on a strong sense of smell to help them locate buried food. However, some buried food gets missed. 🐿 . Squirrels will carry nuts long distances from the original tree, then plant them into the ground. 🌰
Awesome morning volunteering with the kids for MLK day! This year we went down to Seward Park to dig up blackberries with the @sewardparkaudubon and @greenseattlepartnership and after 3 years of volunteering different places I think we’ve found our perfect kid-friendly spot! Also the organizers were super passionate about what they do had a great (short) introduction circle that was the perfect link between the Audubon, Dr King’s work, and combating climate change. We will be coming back here for sure! Anyone else get into some cool volunteer projects today? #dayofservice#dayonnotadayoff#mlk#sewardpark#volunteering#volunteeringwithkids#environmentalist#ecokids#familygoals
#repost @modernveganfam with @get_repost ・・・ JUST at the beginning of the bigger calls to veganism👉 @modernveganfam . . . Via @belinda_vegan ・・・ A global shift towards a #plantbased diet is vital to save the world from #hunger, fuel poverty and the worst impacts of #climatechange, a UN report said today. _ As the global population surges towards a predicted 9.1 billion people by 2050, western tastes for diets rich in #meat and #dairy products are unsustainable, says the report from United Nations Environment Programme’s (UNEP) international panel of sustainable resource management. _ It says: “Impacts from agriculture are expected to increase substantially due to population growth increasing consumption of animal products. Unlike fossil fuels, it is difficult to look for alternatives: people have to eat. A substantial reduction of impacts would only be possible with a substantial worldwide diet change, away from animal products.” _ Professor Edgar Hertwich, the lead author of the report, said: “Animal products cause more damage than producing construction minerals such as sand or cement, plastics or metals. Biomass and crops for animals are as damaging as burning fossil fuels.” _ The recommendation follows advice last year that a plant-based diet was better for the planet from Lord Nicholas Stern, former adviser to the Labour government on the economics of climate change. _ The panel of experts ranked products, resources, economic activities and transport according to their #environmental impacts. Agriculture was on a par with fossil fuel consumption because both rise rapidly with increased economic growth, they said. _ Read the rest at: https://www.eater.com/2015/2/16/8048069/u - #modernveganfam#vegan#govegan#veganism#animallover#veganrules#veganlife#crueltyfree#veganworld#vegangirl#environmentalist#crueltyfree#plantbased#meatless#vegans#vegansofig#veganstyle#rawvegan#meatlessmonday#blackvegan#veganmemes#veganrecipes
