AN OVERREACTION

Today is a very special day.

It’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Today we celebrate his legacy and his life.

To me, there’s even more relevance to his message and his work in our current times.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (officially Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.) is an American federal holiday marking the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.

It is observed on the third Monday of January each year, which is around King’s birthday, January 15. 

King was the chief spokesman for nonviolent activism in the Civil Rights Movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law. The campaign for a federal holiday in King’s honor began soon after his assassination in 1968.

In light of #BlackLivesMatter protests across the country, people have been reflecting on how #MartinLutherKing Jr. would have responded to the deaths of #MichaelBrown, #EricGarner, #TamirRice and many other black men and women who have been killed by police.

19-year-old spoken-word poet Sarah O’Neal recites her poem “An Overreaction,” where she speaks about Dr. King and her frustration at having to defend the protests.

Something to think about …. “Heal the World”!!


Heal

Heal The World

(Song by Michael Jackson)

There’s a place in your heart
And I know that it is love
And this place could be much
Brighter than tomorrow

And if you really try
You’ll find there’s no need to cry
In this place you’ll feel
There’s no hurt or sorrow
There are ways to get there
If you care enough for the living
Make a little space
Make a better place

Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make it a better place
For you and for me …..

(Por Un Mundo Mejor)

~~Uploaded on Aug 8, 2011~~

Es una pequeña muestra de lo mal que lo estamos haciendo y lo mucho que debemos preocuparnos de preparar a nuestros hijos para vivir en este mundo, haciendo que sean portadores de grandes valores.

This is but a small sample of what we are doing wrong. We should be considerably concerned about preparing our children to live in this world. We need to teach them to have real and consistent values and ideologies.

Ruby Rose: ‘I used to pray to God that I wouldn’t get breasts’

The Australian model, DJ and television personality opens up about her struggle with gender identity depicted in her new video

Everybody has a crush on Ruby Rose. Her heart-shaped jaw and piercing eyes first caught the attention of modeling agents when she was a child, and by her teens she was known as the cool tattooed girl on Australian MTV (her audition process required her to pound shots of beer and make out with strangers in the street).

And being gay was not much of a problem for mainstream television. While accepting an award for Favorite Female Personality in 2009, Rose impulsively blurted a question for her teenage tormenters: “Where are you now?!” The statement catapulted her to legitimate Australian sweetheart status, and won her a prestigious contract with Maybelline.

But being a beautiful, down-to-earth lesbian is far less challenging to the status quo than say, secretly wishing you were a boy. These are feelings Ruby has had since she was five or six. Throughout her life, she has oscillated between presenting as feminine and masculine (her “reincarnations,” she calls them), to varying degrees of happiness. In 2013, she cancelled a series of DJ gigs, citing “your ugly old friend Mr Depression.”

Last week, Rose released a very personal short film to tell that story, a gender-fluidity tribute called Break Free. Rose was the last person to predict the resonance that the video would have: at the time of writing, it has been watched almost 5 million times, and has gained Rose 200,000 new Facebook fans. The song, a previously unreleased, unmixed track by Butterfly Boucher, is being prepared for iTunes.

LET’S TALK ABOUT THE VIDEO

Obviously it’s very autobiographical. As a little kid, I was convinced that I was a guy. I used to bind with ACE bandages, which is really, really bad for you. I was like, five or six? I was really young. I didn’t have anything there to bind! I used to sleep on my chest because I thought it would stop me from getting boobs. I used to pray to God that I wouldn’t get breasts.

Then in my teens, I tried to be quite feminine. My mum was pushing me to do some modeling – everyone said I was a very pretty girl. And then one day it just got too much. I shaved my head and just went “Fuck you” to everyone who thought I need to look a certain way. And I got bullied after that. I found myself in really dangerous situations, where, if a guy said something to me like, “What are you? You’re a girl but you’re trying to be a boy,” or “Look at you, you’re disgusting” … if I talked back, a few times I got hit by guys. They’d say, “I would never hit a girl, but you’re not a girl.”

RR19

Eventually I went, “That’s it! I’ll grow my hair again, and try and be a girl.” Because I was pretty determined to get into entertainment, because I was bullied so much. I always said, “You watch! One day, I will do something, it will be great!” So I kind of did the more feminine thing again, did MTV, and after a little bit chopped everything off and am kind of back where it started.

So that’s kind of the video.

You can watch it both ways: you can watch it from the end to the beginning, and it’s exactly the same as watching it from the start to the end, depending if you’re a guy that feels like he’s in a woman’s body or a woman that’s in a guy’s body.
