"The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people’s expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn’t care if you are a white person who likes black people; it’s still going to find a way to infect how you deal with people who don’t look like you. Yes, racism looks like hate, but hate is just one manifestation. Privilege is another. Access is another. Ignorance is another. Apathy is another. And so on. So while I agree with people who say no one is born racist, it remains a powerful system that we’re immediately born into. It’s like being born into air: you take it in as soon as you breathe. It’s not a cold that you can get over. There is no anti-racist certification class. It’s a set of socioeconomic traps and cultural values that are fired up every time we interact with the world. It is a thing you have to keep scooping out of the boat of your life to keep from drowning in it. I know it’s hard work, but it’s the price you pay for owning everything."
A Louisiana man who state police claimed shot and killed himself in March while in police custody died, not of a gunshot wound to the back, as police had initially reported, but of a shot to the chest, according to an autopsy report, KATC reports.
The shooting occurred in the backseat of a patrol car after Victor White III was arrested for drug possession, KLFY notes. White’s hands were apparently cuffed behind his back as he was transported to jail. Once there, the 22-year-old reportedly did not want to get out of the patrol car. At some point, a gun that he was allegedly hiding in his pants appeared and he shot himself in the back, according to police reports.
However, according to KATC, the first page of the autopsy report, released by the Iberia Parish Coroner’s Office, details how White was shot in the chest, completely contradicting earlier police reports made after the fateful night in early March.
The bullet entered the young man’s chest and pierced his left lung and his heart before exiting around his armpit, according to the autopsy, which also called White’s death a “suicide.”
“Here is a family that, we are still grieving,” White’s father, Victor White Sr., told KLFY. “I’m angry the autopsy report took so long. I’m angry and frustrated with the fact that it’s still not over.
“My son didn’t shoot himself. I never believed it. I won’t believe it,” the father added. “My initial response was correct, that something was awry, and that something had gone wrong.”
According to KATC, State Police Master Trooper Brooks David acknowledged that the investigation into White’s death is still open. David also confirmed that while law enforcement did initially think that the wound came from the back, the autopsy proved otherwise.
Ribbon details of Sayapatri 100 layers. The falling ribbons with their Medicine Buddha Mantra, are hung to mimic the patterns of monsoon rain hung to render the spectrum of the prayer flags. Through this repetition of the Medicine Buddha Mantras falling words the collected monsoon rains paired with sacred materials, the artwork becomes impregnated with aura of healing and purification. In this way, the process of making the artwork, mirrors the process of mantra meditation were the artistic practice & spiritual practice become one in the making of the installation.
Eric Petersen is a methodical, calculated artist. He opts to work digitally to remove any personalized evidence of the human touch. He chooses the colors of his works like a scientist dropping carefully-measured chemicals into a vile: The intended effect of these contrasting, bright shades, says Petersen, is one of unsettlement. He sets up compositions that are at once harmonious and jarring. Geometric shapes appear to slice through his planes with razor sharp precision of placement. Yet their rhythmic arrangements give his work a sense of harmony, even while the electric blue, neon yellow and sunset orange hues simultaneously vie for viewers’ attention. See more on Hi-Fructose.

#InsideGarbageWorld- Probably one of the most disturbing documentaries I have seen in quite a while.
Love your ocean, skip that plastic bag.
Still seeking our #NewHome in #SonomaCounty -http://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/hou/4624518280.html
We are 2 responsible, playful married folks in our early 30’s relocating.
Our landlord wants to move into our current home. We are so sad to leave our garden!
Noah is working in construction with Lush Planet Design/Build, Kellie works with Sea of Change Trading Company and Spicy Vines Wine - in Sales.
We’re happy and relaxed.
We enjoy life.
We hope to find a place to ourselves that is sunny, and hopefully long term (A year at the very least). However, we are open to looking at many kinds of situations.
We prefer to live in a house or cottage, not an apartment complex where we share walls with many others.
We always improve the space we live in, are very much into sustainable ways of living. We love gardening and the outdoors.
We have a geodesic dome we would like to put up!
We pay our bills on time.
We have very good professional and personal references.
Please let us know if we may be a good fit. WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU!
