    "The growth of incarceration rates among black men in recent decades combined with the sharp drop in black employment rates during the Great Recession have left most black men in a position relative to white men that is really no better than the position they occupied only a few years after the Civil Rights Act."

    manic panic and the art of zen

    my hair is over 12” long and I dye it myself.

    It occurred to me today, that dyeing my hair always takes an extremely large amount of patience and attention to detail.

    I must commit to the practice and see it through until completion.

    It’s not like anything will happen to me if I don’t finish dyeing my hair, aside from I will have half my head that looks pretty strange.

    Maybe this is what happens to your inner world—emotional landscape, mental health, etc— when you don’t take time to meditate or don’t finish sitting until your meditation is complete.

    And even if you feel like it’s complete, kinda just like hair dye, you need to let it sit for a basic amount of time even if you’re over it. Once you get more adept at dyeing your hair or meditating, you know when the time is up but until you’re there, it’s best to set a timer.

    But I didn’t write this to draw those kinds of parallels— I wrote it because meditation doesn’t have to be sitting cross-legged on your bum for 20 minutes everyday. It’s meditation when you do this repeated exercise and follow your hair from top to bottom and the next chunk and release attachment and refocus to finish and the constant fluctuation between coming and going and the continual return.

    Well… meditation is every where & I noticed it here. It took me over 1 hour to dye my hair and it’s done now but I love the action. And while I spent all this time on myself, it’s impermanent dye so it will wash away in a few months like a sand mandala in the Buddhist monk’s temples.

    Does it surprise you that the leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions- specifically methane which is 4x more potent than co2 (despite staying in the atmosphere for a shorter duration)- is LIVESTOCK? Yes, that’s right! Your meat habit is the leading cause of climate change. While pigs may have the most pollutive by products- excrement (google: livestock lagoons)- cows specifically are the worst emitters of methane. Now, I know the arguments for and against consuming meat very well. I am very much aware of human history and prehistory and how this lends itself nicely to the meat consumption arguments. But seeing as how it has been proven that a well balanced vegan diet is not only adequate but in some ways superior to a “standard” or “normal” or “omnivorous” diet, I want you to think about how your dietary choice to eat meat- specifically factory raised meat and cow flesh- is the leading cause of animal extinction, deforestation, and climate change. Is your burger worth the probable extinction of life on earth simply because you like it? That’s a rhetorical question but feel free to answer it how you like. #govegan

    "There is no way that the proportions of Black and Native American children in foster care would ever happen to white children[…] if child welfare systems removed 1 in 10 white children from their families as they have in many Black and Native American communities, the systems would be shut down."

    Dorothy Roberts, author of Shattered Bonds: The Color of Child Welfare

    Black children constitute only 17 percent of the youth population in the U.S, yet make up 42 percent of all children in foster care nationwide. [pdf source download]

    There are also more Native American & First Nations children being removed from families of origin today than there were at the HEIGHT of the ‘residential schools’ system.

    It’s essential that we critique a sexist, misogynistic, racist, hyper-violent society without stigmatizing millions of people with mental health issues.
