Kelly Rowland and Lorde at the Grammy Nominations
Kelly is internally screaming for help.
Someone explain to me why Lorde looks like she’s 67 damn years old.
Genetic and racial predisposition to age like a grape
how old is she tho?
The fact remains that I have NEVER seen a young looking person from New Zealand. They all just look…middle aged forever or something. Not even middle aged, maybe 30s. Lucy Lawless looked the same until they did her stressed out make up for Spartacus.
Ifanyi & Isira
I ran into Ifanyi & Isira on Hawthorne. Ifanyi is a filmmaker and “Creator/Producer/Storyteller/Everything.” I first heard about Ifanyi after reading a story he wrote on Portland native and filmmaker Jordan Thierry for Oregon Public Broadcasting. I’d been hoping to photograph him for some time, so was thrilled to run into him on the street.
I photographed Ifanyi and Isira outside of Cup and Saucer and was able to meet that day him for an interview with OPB. His beautifully written piece, published yesterday, is linked below. He made some great connections about The Black Portlanders that I really appreciate. The audio aspect of the interview will be airing on OPB Radio’s State of Wonder show today at noon PST on 91.5 FM or or online at http://www.opb.org/listen/
The interview itself can be viewed at
"If there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America. They don’t care for human beings."
Nelson Mandela on the US invasion of Iraq
This is the Mandela that I mourn not the white-washed, sanitized version of a revolutionary figure that aligned with Communists, was part of a group branded as terrorists by Reagan, who continued to voice his opposition to Israel’s apartheid regime and illegal occupation of the West Bank and used armed resistance to fight apartheid in South Africa.
The way white people are exalting him across the political spectrum globally based on his national reconciliation work in South Africa post-apartheid (which did have major pitfalls for non-whites in particular) and erasing his revolutionary past and fight for equality across the globe shows just how ignorant of history they are and how incredibly myopic they are too.
White people are doing to Mandela what they’ve already done to Martin Luther King, Jr., and it makes me sick. If I see one more racist white liberal lionizing Mandela in a way that erases his revolutionary past so their facebook status about his death can serve as their “feel-good” justification of the day for their “liberalism,” I’m going to be sick. And don’t even get me started on the white American conservatives who are now lauding him even as Reagan demonized the ANC and Dick Cheney voted against a resolution that would have urged the South African apartheid government to remove Mandela from prison.
Don’t sanitize Mandela for your white comfort. He’s a hero in many regards, but maybe not for the reasons you might think based on the whitewashing he’s receiving in the media to hollow him out and make him into a puppet figure for racist white liberals and conservatives alike, just like MLK.
