Share This.Fuck Tibet. What’s Tibet done for you lately? Thought so. “Free Tibet” has been a battle cry for activists for more than a decade , and I’m glad someone’s out there voicing that opinion. Activists keep the debate alive, and slowly but surely tend to pull things along in the right direction. But the whole iconic strawberry-fields-kumbaya Tibet myth has got to go. I’m not defending China’s imperialist aims. Read More

Share This.Since I first started writing this article, the Edward Snowden real-time spy story has progressed from celebrity-style media coverage to an international diplomatic fiasco. There is no easy way to assess the situation or the man, so following the wise advice of my late grandfather, I am taking a few steps back and observing the situation from the most macro possible perspective of which I am currently capable. When Read More

Share This.Perhaps the most powerful statement of our young century, “One day the poor will have nothing left to eat but rich” is available in a statement heavy tee by Zeph Farmby. The OWS movement may have fizzled out, but a shirt like this lets everyone know that the same spirit that sparked the infamous, but short lived, revolution lives on the heart of all those who oppose socio-economic injustice.

Share This.Our final topic of discussion, Classism, was the elephant in the room. No matter how we much we tried to tiptoe around the subject, we always found ourselves bumping into it. And good thing that we finally breached that subject. Once we sunk our teeth into classism, the overall exchange was surprisingly cordial, heated, but cordial. Mary Pryor had to step out because of a prior engagement, but our senior Read More

Share This.Sexism is the oldest -ism in the world. Since humanity began, men and women have been at odds with each other, and at the same time, have been unable to live without each other; the ultimate love-hate relationship. While history shows us that sexism has been largely aimed at women, is it fair to say that it only goes one way? During our round-table discussion of sexism, featured below, one Read More

Share This.While this country has come a long way in its struggle to overcome racism, many issues of race still persist. At the same time new trends in racism have begun to emerge as the demographic of our country continues to change. New trends emerge and reignite old issues, even, or perhaps especially, because we live in the era when this country is being led by its first black President. Read More

Mary Pryor was the first to arrive, with Kane Mayfield, Perri Dash and Crystal Hines not too far behind.

Share This.Last night’s debate was a doozy. We’re not particularly a fan of all his policies but last night in Denver, Mitt Romney’s policies hardly even mattered–mainly because he completely abandoned some of them. But that isn’t our point. The point is, in most Americans eyes, Romney won that debate; and after trailing behind in the polls for some time now, Romney is singing a new song:
