In other words...randomness.
You got questions, I got answers.
May 17, 1954: The Supreme Court Rules on Brown v. Board of Education
On this day in 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously that racial segregation in public schools violated the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, which says that no state may deny equal protection of the laws to any person within its jurisdiction.
Although the decision did not succeed in fully desegregating public education in the United States, it put the Constitution on the side of racial equality and galvanized the nascent civil rights movement into a full revolution.
Can you name all the key players behind Brown v. Board of Education? Revisit the landmark case with PBS’ The Supreme Court site.

Now lets look at the state of schools today. Any difference?
I miss Marfa.
The Monuments Men were a group of men and women from thirteen nations, most of whom volunteered had expertise as museum directors, curators, art scholars and educators, artists, architects, and archivists. The Monuments Men job description was simple: to save as much of the culture of Europe as they could during combat.
Just imagining how much art, how much history lost in the midst of war. Casualties of war.
i’ll be here, you should be here too ! #JazzReggaeFest @ UCLA May 26th & 27th 💃🔥
Wish I could make it.
Barbara Kruger’s never really talked about Supreme, the skate company who’s been ripping off her ideas and prints letter for letter, color for color, for their red-and-white logo, which you have seen, because it is everywhere.
I emailed her casually to ask her about this. And today, she got back to me, and gave a candid statement on the matter of Supreme for the first time, ever, really. By emailing me a blank email, with an attachment. Which you can see above.
Marfa texas has about 200 students. Total. Out of those 200, 98 are in high school. In a town, in the dessert, who would have thought that Slut Shaming would be an issue? Well interestingly enough, some have taken issue with it. Whether it be from personal experiences, or just seeing things in the world for what they are, this proved interesting to me. The youth may not be lost after all!
