The rate of Indigenous children removed from their home is 10.6 times the rate of non-Indigenous children nationally, and higher in every jurisdiction.

thepeoplesrecord:

The overrepresentation of Indigenous children in the child protection system is “complicated”, says the report. “The legacy of past policies of forced removal; intergenerational effects of previous separations from family and culture; lower socioeconomic status; and perceptions arising from cultural differences in child-rearing practices, are all underlying causes for their over-representation in the child welfare system,” it reads.

It still surprises me that a few of my colleagues who regularly attend music festivals like Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and Budweiser Made in America still haven’t heard of, or don’t seem to know much about, the annual Essence Festival, held every July 4th weekend in New Orleans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Given that the Festival is now celebrating its 20th anniversary and pulling in record numbers of attendees, that benign neglect is not only a crying shame — it’s a kind of organized ignorance.

First, an image by Ricardo Cortés, 2014, from “The Act of Whitening”:

For Kara Walker’s first large-scale public project, A Subtlety…, presented by Creative Time at Brooklyn’s Domino Sugar Factory, Creative Time Reports features poetry, prose and illustrations related to central themes of Walker’s exhibition. Here, writer and illustrator Ricardo Cortés presents a series of drawings referencing the slave labor central to sugar’s historic manufacture.

One inspiration undoubtedly came from Edward King, The Great South (Hartford, Conn., 1875), p. 83. According to The Atlantic Slave Trade and Slave Life in the Americas: A Visual Record, this lithograph,

Shows the reaping of the sugar cane; [B]lack fieldworkers, white overseer. Original sketch made by J. Wells Chamney who accompanied the author during 1873 and the spring and summer of 1874; the latter describes this plantation on pp. 82-83. Although relating to the post-emancipation period, the scene evokes the later antebellum years.

the only time it’s okay to wash berries even if you aren’t eating them immediately is if you let them soak in 1 part apple cider vinegar to 4 parts water for 10-15 minutes. it’s a fruit wash and idk how or why but my berries last for up to 2 weeks, easily.

I agree with the vinegar and berries thing. If I soak mine in water and vinegar after buying them they last so much longer!
