From California to Quebec, Students Fight Tuition Hikes

From California to Quebec, Students Fight Tuition Hikes

"If you have 300 people against three or four police officers—well, what happened in Chicago was that one group of police officers shot and killed three black Communists involved in this movement. And then fifty thousand people marched through the city in a memorial parade—and after that it became incredibly difficult to evict anybody in Chicago."

— Remarks by Mark Naison, of Fordham University, at the Occupy Onward Conference

The first African American to attend the University of Mississippi was James Meredith. During a voters registration march in 1967 he was ambushed by white supremacist and shot by a sniper. He was shot in the head,neck and back but only wounded. He was shouting “isn’t anyone going to help me??!!” Why didn’t the photographer help him? 

This photo breaks my heart. What is wrong with people?

This is why, also it’s the real source. Why do you people always “forget” the source? Stop stealing images. The whole story and more about James Meredith here.

What Was the Hipster?

All descriptions of hipsters are doomed to disappoint, because they will not be the hipsters you know. But to those of you who are reading this in 2050, I can only say: Everything in this book is true, and its impressions are perfect.
