Tolerable Confusion

    1 Sep 2014

    Three things happened tonight on my way home

    1. I saw two different groups of about 10 men crowed together arguing but not in a violent way just a playful we’re all drunk way n I couldn’t help but to think of a video Taylor had showed us earlier n I was instantly suspicious and slightly disturbed

    2. Blocks from my house a car is parked inches from the corner pointed directly at a light post with a cop car behind it both are abandoned and still running

    3. A raccoon runs across the street, it’s cute it makes me smile

    suddenly I realize I’m home an I’m sitting in the garage and the all though today was awesome n I saw so many I love and worked 10hrs and at a job I like to work at ….nothing beats watching that raccoon run across the road the way it did

    sfdoom said: Hi Via, I was hoping you could help me. I've been looking for a link to your deathvialove album after hearing it yesterday and absolutely loving it. I keep finding the same mediafire link on soundcloud and blogspots and it always ends up empty when i download it. Is it up anywhere else that I could try? or is it available to buy somewhere else?

    As man I apologize we haven’t made another link yet an the media fire only works on Mac computers :(

    Malcolm X at a meeting in Paris, November 23, 1964

    • White interviewer: If it was our white ancestors who bought you and enslaved you, we are their children. We are the new generation. Why don't you call us your brothers?
    • Malcolm X: A man has to act like a brother before you can call him a brother. You made a very good point, really, that needs some clarification. If you are the son of the man who had a wealthy estate and you inherit your father's estate, you have to pay off the debts that your father incurred before he died. The only reason that the present generation of white Americans are in the position of economic strength that they are is because their fathers worked our fathers for over 400 years with no pay. For over 400 years we worked for nothing. We were sold from plantation to plantation like you sell a horse, or a cow, or a chicken, or a bushel of wheat. It was your fathers who did it to our fathers, and all of that money that piled up from the sale of my mother and my grandmother and my great-grandmother is what gives the present generation of American whites [the ability] to walk around the earth with their chest out; you know, like they have some kind of economic ingenuity. Your father isn't here to pay his debts. My father isn't here to collect. But I'm here to collect and you're here to pay.

"I am Not here to "Entertain" you 
Or bring you comfort 
I am not your long lost experimental
Lust child 
Do not praise my features 
you would have let my great great great grand parents hang for 
I do not accept your TRUTH
nor will I tell my children’s children 
of your evil your story will die 
and you with it
no one will speak your name
you will become a myth 
a tall tale 
No child will want to believe 
We will erase you
You and your ways of living LIFE
Not because we are spiteful 
But because we are tired 
Of reliving your side/lies of the story 
you won’t have any power in the future 
You won’t have any power……
History will repeat it self and it will be beautiful and full of life in the future 
History will repeat itself and it will be 
A life worth living……”

    It’s been an incredibly difficult five days with what’s happened in what I look at as my back yard. Last night watching the live feeds of what was happening in Ferguson, MO was absolutely unbelievable and I spent the entire night refreshing twitter feeling total shame and despair.

    Today though, across the country there were little glimpses of light at this very dark tunnel. Being consumed by this level of anger feels exhausting, and take that with an incredibly huge grain of salt because that’s just what I with the privilege of being a white male am capable of feeling. I’m not capable of comprehending the real pain. At today’s NMOS14 demonstration in Chicago, an incredible number of people gathered on short notice. The assembly was peaceful. We listened to people express their hurt, their hope, their anger, and their drive to change things. Once my camera died (again, short notice on this rally), I biked straight to my computer to share the solidarity- if only here in Chicago.

    I know this isn’t really the stuff I normally post on here, but I figure the one time I’m literally crying while taking pictures is probably a good time to post stuff. My gratitude goes to everyone organizing today, and not just here but everywhere.

    this portrait of malcolm is especially powerful. it makes my heart heavy.

    some of the most powerful, wonderful human beings i have ever met are in these photos. this is the truth.
