The Best Pictures of This Year’s Japanese Cherry Blossoms

The Japanese cherry blossom, known as the Sakura in Japanese, is the flower of a cherry tree that is cultivated for its decorative features rather than for cherries (it doesn’t bear fruit). The overwhelming beauty of the cherry blossom bloom has been known and adored for ages. The blooming period is associated with Japanese traditions, culture, aesthetics, and is a bittersweet metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life itself.

The blooming cherry blossoms herald the beginning of the centuries-old Hanami festival – the traditional Japanese custom of picnicking under trees rich with flowering Sakura branches and enjoying this short but striking first breath of spring. The blossoming wave usually starts in Okinawa in January or February and progresses through all of Japan until April or May. The cherry blossom front (Sakura zensen) can be conveniently tracked every year using this calendar.

Movie Quote of the Week: Paris is Burning (1990)

"When someone has rejection from their mother and father, their family, they - when they get out in the world - they search. They search for someone to fill that void."

This semester I went to the White Privilege Conference in Madison, WI for my honors seminar about examining privilege. I made a poster about the behaviors of particular white female musicians who appropriate other cultures as a means of identity and sexualize/objectify WOC as a means of displaying sexual agency and social power. All under the guise of “empowerment”.


This is my take on the knowledge I found through seminar and readings, (esp. online articles) so in no way do I claim these ideas or concepts as my own.

#IfItAintWhiteItAintRight

I always find it interesting how the world will shit on African people while simultaneously stealing and mimicking African culture. 
 
They called Africans who stretched their earlobes “primitive” then proceeded to copy it.
 
Remember that “dreads” were seen as derogatory ?
Whites would call it dreadful, dirty, ugly ETC…

African women been carrying Babies on their back since for ever.
There was criticism for that now that got “baby carriers”

They used to make fun of African Women’s BIG LIPS and ASSES now EVERYBODY want a big lips and big asses. 

White people have been obsessed with Africans ever since we came in contact don’t ever forget that. So obsessed they had to get their hands on your continent.

Now we running around here ashamed of our own people and our own heritage like fools.
