Crazy. This is how I just got picked up in #Stockholm. 
A Swedish entreprenuer has decided to use his car to elevate the conversation surrounding Congo. The symbol represents the 5 generations of exploitation in Congo - from the rubber trade to the mineral trade - by the outside world.

So who are the Koch Brothers anyways? 
Here are the facts: 
They have an enormous political influence: Associated Press said they are “shaping politics” this year, and three GOP candidates credited them for their success.
They are Big Oil barons, who made their fortune on oil refining and continue to get the bulk of their wealth from the fossil fuel industry.
They spend far more than any “liberal equivalents,” and they spend in line with their financial interests.
They use shady operations and "dark money" to fund their interests.
They pretend to advocate economic liberty, but they attack renewables exclusively while defending fossil fuels.
They claim to have a good environmental track record but their company is responsible for hundreds of oil spills, paid hundreds of millions in fines, and even caused deaths.
They push an extreme agenda.

Last words of unarmed black youth gunned down by law enforcement. 

"There are reasons why white gun’s rights activists can walk into a Chipotle restaurant with assault rifles and be seen as gauche nuisances while unarmed black men are killed for reaching for their wallets or cell phones, or carrying children’s toys. Guns aren’t for black people, either.”

from America is Not For Black People

if you live your whole life and then die without making a purposeful choice to become a white ally then American racism becomes your legacy.

Meet Glora Etim

Sometimes I take pictures of people when they are not aware. This is the best because that’s when they show true emotions, natural facial expressions. I usually wait at the junction of my street for about 10 minutes to catch a cab to the high school I teach at and during that time I watch these young children going to school with their big dreams and bright faces. I watch the little ones scream and cry and tug at their mothers when their school buses arrive. I love to watch this show everyday and it inspired me to begin a series – the school children series.  I take photographs of children I come across on their way to school. Many a time I speak to them. Some of them dream of becoming pilots and astronauts and I think that I really beautiful.
