    The New Jim Crow

    1. Ferguson, Missouri has a population of approximately 21,000 people — roughly 67% of those residents are Black

    2. The Ferguson police department has around 53 commisioned officers —3 of them are Black

    3. Ferguson had *zero* homicides for all of 2014 —until Michael Brown was murdered by Darrin Wilson

    4. Things you should know: Five Myths About Black-on-Black Crime

    5. Michael Brown was 18yrs old and was about to begin college. Brown had no criminal record, and despite the Ferguson PD’s smear campaign, Mike Brown PAID FOR the cigars —those facts are all important and should be known, but even if Brown was a high school dropout with prior arrests who stole the cigars, 1) it wouldn’t have made his life any less valuable, 2) we have a court system and those are not capital offenses and 3) it doesn’t change the fact that the cop who killed him, Darren Wilson, had no idea about Brown’s personal history when he executed Brown. Wilson saw only a Black teen deemed either “too uppity” or “suspicious” because of his skin color

    6. Five examples: The Militarization of the police

    7. It’s deeply Institutional: Police view Black Children As Less Innocent

    8. This is Not the first time Ferguson’s police have been heavy handed with it’s Black residents  - Innocent Black man beaten by cops, then charged with bleeding on police officer’s uniforms

    9. So please - don’t get it twisted

    Want to say sorry in advance to my future hypothetical boyfriend for those times I say that I’m going grocery shopping but end up coming home six hours later with no groceries and some pretty pictures.

  7. "When I was a little girl they told me I could be whatever I wanted.
    They forgot to tell me that people would ask my husband about his job, and me about the kids,
    forgot to tell me that the company for which I work
    will have more rights that I will,
    forgot to tell me that my body will be up for debate in
    political circles, internet forums, the comment sections
    by people who cannot name the parts of woman
    that make a child,
    but will tell you the cells inside a womb
    are more important than those around them.

    They didn’t mention that if I tried to be
    a career woman and a mother
    that people would ask how?

    That trying to have it all
    would earn criticism
    instead of praise.

    What do you want to be when you grow up?

    I am going to be a woman,
    but I’d like to be a human, too."

    What if mermaids live really long - and the longer they live, the bigger they grow?

    (I guess the bigger they grow, the harder it is for them to stick their torso and even their head out of the water. That’s why no one ever sees the big ones. And definitely never the huge ones.)

    A bit late to the party, but here’s my contribution to Julie Dillon’s Catalog of Merfolk. I didn’t have nearly as much time to finish this as I wanted, but I have to be up in 5 hours so this will have to do!

    Dmitry GombergAkrak Vazha (The Shepherd’s Way)

    Artist’s statement: 

    "This is a story about Tusheti - mountain region in the Republic of Georgia. Tusheti lies near the Chechen border and it is culturally closer to Chechens than to Georgians.

    The story is about shepherds who travel every summer to their ancestors’ land Tusheti and than return to spend the winter at the bottom of the mountain. Twice a year they travel with their sheep through the pass in the Caucasus which is 3,000 meters high. 

    I was staying and documenting life of the Shepherds in the Caucasus mountains for 5 years. These people have been cheese makers since before Christ. Their life is simple and harsh, but beautiful.”
