I don’t care if Mike Brown was going to college soon. This should not matter. We should not have to prove Mike Brown was worthy of living. We should not have to account for the ways in which he is suitably respectable. We should not have to prove that his body did not deserve to be riddled with bullets. His community should not have to silence their anger so they won’t be accused of rioting, so they won’t become targets too.
So long as I confine my activities to social service and the blind, they compliment me extravagantly, calling me ‘arch priestess of the sightless,’ ‘wonder woman,’ and a ‘modern miracle.’ But when it comes to a discussion of poverty, and I maintain that it is the result of wrong economics—that the industrial system under which we live is at the root of much of the physical deafness and blindness in the world—that is a different matter! It is laudable to give aid to the handicapped. Superficial charities make smooth the way of the prosperous; but to advocate that all human beings should have leisure and comfort, the decencies and refinements of life, is a Utopian dream, and one who seriously contemplates its realization indeed must be deaf, dumb, and blind.

For some reason, instagram makes food look better than it actually is. After a tasty meal with @andtangy, I was craving some more Kbbq. On day 2 of trying to cook everyday for 10 days straight, the star was these Korean tacos ft. @jryu90 bulgogi, kimchi fried rice, and a sprig o cilantro. Apparently there is no bulgogi beef on Chicago hence the huge chunks of meat. Not pictured: the awesome fried egg I layered on after my 3 one. #nomoretopramen
