guys we need to find out more about the naga people in india and support them since they are a minority group in india like us. They declared independence in 1947 which was not recognized by india or the un, and according to some websites ~200,000 people have been killed in the conflict between Myanmar, India and the Naga. I read somewhere today that indian police fired guns at peaceful protestors recently, and think it’s important to stand up for them and recognize their struggle since nobody talks about it.
anyways, dont know much so im off to do more research!

this is so beautiful, anyone know where this is? (L)
Blessed were those gursikhs,
Who had a saw on top of their head
Slowly cutting into their skull
Who had their children cut to pieces
Before their own eyes
Who went through so much
Torture and adversity
But not once did your name
Leave their minds
Not once did their faith in you
Muslim woman covered the yellow star of her Jewish neighbour with her veil on the streets of Sarajevo in 1941Human beings are members of a whole; in creation of one essence and soul. If one member is afflicted with pain, other members uneasy will remain. If you have no sympathy for human pain, the name of human you cannot retain. - Saadi
Once in a great while a book comes along that changes the way we see the world and helps to fuel a nationwide social movement. The New Jim Crow is such a book. Praised by Harvard Law professor Lani Guinier as “brave and bold,” this book directly challenges the notion that the election of Barack Obama signals a new era of colorblindness. With dazzling candor, legal scholar Michelle Alexander argues that “we have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely redesigned it.” By targeting black men through the War on Drugs and decimating communities of color, the U.S. criminal justice system functions as a contemporary system of racial control—relegating millions to a permanent second-class status—even as it formally adheres to the principle of colorblindness. In the words of Benjamin Todd Jealous, president and CEO of the NAACP, this book is a “call to action.”
Called “stunning” by Pulitzer Prize–winning historian David Levering Lewis, “invaluable” by theDaily Kos, “explosive” by Kirkus, and “profoundly necessary” by the Miami Herald, this updated and revised paperback edition of The New Jim Crow, now with a foreword by Cornel West, is a must-read for all people of conscience.
