I think the growing number of cities changing “Columbus Day” to “Indigenous Peoples’ Day” requires us to be critical about the politics of recognition. This piece was put together by activists whose work I support and respect. Please give it a read as you get ready to celebrate/protest on Monday. Link at the bottom. ❤️👊🏽
“Indigenous Peoples’ Day, as a process of collusion with occupying state forces, risks becoming a colonial patriotic ritual more than anything that amounts to liberation."
Some days you just gotta roll up to your local comic shop and grab some new reading material. Thanks @allaboutcomicspics ❤️Seemed like a good week for stories about girls on a revenge mission and Mexican mythology by @ericmesquivel 👊🏽 Thanks for the recommendations @iamevesapple and @javierloscomex ! #PaperGirls #BorderTownComic at All About Comics
This gave me chills! All I can say is my man @kyleabrahamofficial is THE TRUTH! New York City Ballet will never be the same. If you’re anywhere near NYC go! 👊🏽❤️ #Repost @kyleabrahamofficial with @get_repost
So much to say really...for for now I’ll just say this...I’m so overwhelmed with relief and joy that people have responded the way they have to The Runaway for New York City Ballet. But it’s also really important for me to say that I in no way condone the impulsive, irrational and insensitive remarks that Kayne West has made in recent days. I will however tell you that I do truly love Kanye West and hope that people can remember this is/was the same man who said “George Bush doesn’t care about black people”...As I said, I do not in any way condone Mr. West recent actions by any stretch of the imagination...If you know me and have actually seen this dance in it’s entirety, you hopefully know or get that this dance was intended to say or do something else. It’s original title wasThe Sunken Place...but I thought that was both insensitive and too on the nose for what it appears Kanye West actions have alluded to in recent times. Hence the title, The Runaway...which leaves more mystery and creates more abstraction while acknowledging his catalogue and perhaps his character. I’ve loved every album and practically every song he’s ever produced. But I do think he should take more time out of the spotlight...and not because I don’t want new music, clothes etc from this brotha...but because I think he needs time to rest and hopefully come back to us in a healthy light...and for more than 1-2 weeks. I don’t know Mr. West personally...Hopefully, one day I’ll get to meet him in person and have a real conversation with him. I have so much more to say about this experience...which I’ll do soon (with more sleep and thought). If you haven’t seen the NYCB season...COME THROUGH! The dancers at NYCB are truly remarkable! Im grateful for the opportunity I was given and I hope you can see the work we’ve made together on 10/4 & 6 @nycballet @gilesdeacon_ @scully.daniel @kyleabrahamofficial @kanyewest #taylorstanley #nycb #therunaway #kyleabraham #pinkpolokanye at New York City Ballet
