Just heard on the radio that the jury who will determine whether or not to charge killer cop Darren Wilson for murdering Mike Brown is composed of 3 Black people and 9 whites………….
you know jurors are selected at random right
Did anyone saying anything that said we didn’t know this was the case????????????
Did anyone allude to this selection being “fixed”???????????
No, now sit down and shut up. Juries are elected at random, and this makeup is a randomly selected MESS.
Did Ridley Scott’s “Exodus” movie give the Sphinx a white/European makeover?
The backlash against Ridley Scott’s Exodus is gathering momentum. After Noah’s mixed reception earlier this year, more and more people are sick of seeing movies with “whitewashed” casts: White actors representing historical figures who almost certainly were not white.
The latest accusation of Exodus whitewashing relates to someone who technically isn’t even a character: the Sphinx.
The likeliest explanation is that the sculpture in this picture is not the Sphinx, but is in fact a statue of Ramses. This means that it would have been based on actor Joel Edgerton’s face.
Unfortunately, this just makes the whitewashed casting even more blatant, because real statues of Ramses II simply do not look like that. So while Exodus may not have made a “white version” of the Sphinx, Egyptian culture is still being erased and rewritten to fit in with the film’s predominantly white cast of actors.
maybe we don’t need these movies at all!

A beautiful set of portrait photography called PERCEPTION by Aboriginal artist K.C. Adams. She explains:
Tired of reading negative and disparaging remarks directed at Indigenous people of Winnipeg in the press and social media, local artist KC Adams creates a body of work that documents another perspective.
This photo series called “Perception,” is an attempt to combat the stereotypes some of the public have of First Nation, Inuit and Metis people to illustrate, you can’t judge a book by its cover.
In the first photo, the models were asked to think about racist remarks they or their family have experienced such as the text written on the title of their photo. In the second photo, they were asked to think about a family member or a happy moment in their life and write their own self-identifying title
"I always felt that there were so many Indigenous People in Winnipeg who were leaders in their community and living normal or average lives. However their stories never made it into the newspapers or on social media. Then the scandal with Mayoral candidate Gord Steeve’s wife Lorrie Steeves broke in the media and I realized that racism is very much alive in Winnipeg. I decided to ask models to pose for me and offer them a chance to label themselves". — KC Adams #perception — in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
