“Being a Christian is less about cautiously avoiding sin than about courageously and actively doing God’s will.”

“Let me say this: Martin Luther King Junior, today, could be taken to jail without due process or judicial process under the National Defense Authorization Act. Because he had a connection with a freedom fighter who was called a terrorist named Nelson Mandela. He just got off the Terrorist List — in 2008 — of America, let’s be honest about that. Because he had a relation to a “Terrorist.” And under the present administration you can assassinate Americans, you can take them to jail without due process. That’s a repressive side of the government that the Black Freedom Movement has always been suspicious of. We got black political prisoners right now in America. And they’re in there precisely because the repression came down so hard and their love was such that they were willing to tell the truth. That was a threat to the status quo. And we don’t even talk about them. … That’s why the Culture of Fear is not just silence, I don’t think, my dear brothers and sisters. People are afraid. They’re afraid to lose their jobs, they’re afraid to lose their status, they’re afraid of not going to the nice tea parties, they’re afraid of not going to the White House. You can’t have a Culture of Fear and generate a movement. That’s why it’s not just about justice. … We gotta talk about love. Martin was a tiding of love. If you’re not talking about love and willingness to sacrifice, all this is just sounding brass and tinkling cymbal. We’re not going nowhere. We’re not going nowhere. You’ve got to hit the streets, you got to go to jail and be willing to die. That’s what the movement’s about. If you’re not willing to do that, then keep your job and drink your tea. That’s what we’re talking about.”
“It is really mortifying, sir, when a woman possessed of a common share of understanding considers the difference of education between the male and female sex, even in those families where education is attended to… Nay why should your sex wish for such a disparity in those whom they one day intend for companions and associates. Pardon me, sir, if I cannot help sometimes suspecting that this neglect arises in some measure from an ungenerous jealousy of rivals near the throne.”
— Abigail Adams writing to John Thaxter, 15 February 1778. (via coolchicksfromhistory)

Gentrification in Progress

Smart work on the street, from a sharp artist and close homie of ours — whatup GILF!  The last two images are from a building where the landlord recently got old school NYC, and destroyed the building to displace rent-stabilized tenants.  They’re in court now.  See the video here.

Jan. 15, 1909: Shackleton’s Party Reaches the South Magnetic Pole

On this day in 1909, members of Ernest Shackleton’s Nimrod Expedition party discovered the south magnetic pole. Shackleton, who had divided up the team, failed to reach the South Pole. Upon his return, Shackleton was still hailed as a hero for his grueling and groundbreaking expedition.

In 1914, he placed in a London newspaper seeking recruits for his 1914 Trans-Antarctic Expedition.

 ”MEN WANTED: FOR HAZARDOUS JOURNEY. SMALL WAGES, BITTER COLD, LONG MONTHS OF COMPLETE DARKNESS, CONSTANT DANGER, SAFE RETURN DOUBTFUL. HONOUR AND RECOGNITION IN CASE OF SUCCESS. SIR ERNEST SHACKLETON”

Watch Episode One of Chasing Shackleton, a new three-part series that follows a modern expedition that re-creates Sir Ernest Shackleton’s Trans-Antarctic Expedition.

That job description though! Sounds like a perfect summer internship ….
