Seit gestern ist die neue Ausgabe des @separeemagazin im Handel erhältlich. Diesmal durfte ich ein fünfseitiges Interview mit den Gründer*innen des fairen, feministischen und freiburg-basierten Porno-Startups @feuer.zeug führen. Gönnt euch. 🖤
These are some of the stories we need to hear right now ❤
"After Stephanie Hollifield (@momstrosityco) adopted her black daughter Hayley at eight months old, she soon realised she didn’t know what to do with her little girl’s afro hair. At age two it was becoming hard to manage, so Stephanie reached out to Facebook for help. .
But one woman, Monica Hunter, went the extra mile, offering to come to Stephanie’s house and walk her through exactly how to style her daughter’s hair.
In a second post on Facebook, Stephanie uploaded a photo of Monica and her daughter Haley and wrote about how grateful she was for the stranger’s efforts.
‘She gave us her time, advice, headbands, combs and hair product,’ explains Stephanie.
‘She asked for nothing in return and wouldn’t accept my money. By the time she left I had a little more confidence in fixing my daughter’s hair, and most importantly I felt supported by my new friend." Via Metro

reposting this because no one read the caption the first time. also understand that while this is positive, it’s not a “win,” charging the cops is the least the justice system can do for george floyd’s family. this is the justice they are guaranteed under us law.
Il luogo della parola si manifesta anche così. L'attore e comico brasiliano Paulo Gustavo, che conta su Instagram 13,5 milioni di follower, ha deciso di cedere per tutto il mese di giugno il proprio profilo a Djamila Ribeiro con l'obiettivo di amplificare la battaglia contro il razzismo. "Di fronte a questa situazione tanto brutale, nel mese di giugno il mio profilo Instagram sarà totalmente dedicato ad affrontare la questione razziale in Brasile. E ho deciso per questo di cedere il mio account alla scrittrice e attivista Djamila Ribeiro, che tratterà contenuti molto importanti per tutti noi", ha scritto l'attore che poi ha aggiunto: "Mi sento obbligato ad aiutare e la mia miglior posizione sarà quella di ascoltare e imparare! Rendiamo visibili le voci che hanno sempre parlato, ma non sono state ascoltate! Impariamo insieme? Questa è una lotta di tutte e di tutti! Conoscere e capire il razzismo nel paese è una nostra responsabilità politica! Ho letto i suoi libri e articoli e penso che sia geniale! Seguirò queste lezioni e ci rivedremo a luglio! Grazie, Regina Djamila, per aver accettato di unirti al mio account e portare storie e conoscenze che toccheranno e trasformeranno migliaia di persone". ⠀
Grazie anche dall'Italia!!! 🌺

yes, voting is important and i urge you all to vote for the democratic nominee and get trump out of office. but telling black people, who have historically been disenfranchised through jim crow, and in modern times the laws against felons voting coupled with the school—>prison pipeline, to just vote instead of protesting/rioting/taking action, is ignorant and dismissive of their reality. and also, as much as i prefer obama + every democrat to trump, lets not pretend that obama + the other dems handled this issue very well. there has been police brutality under every president we have ever had and trump is definitely making things worse and emboldening white supremacists and literally declaring marshall law on protestors, but we can’t pretend systemic racism will be fixed with a simple vote.
While we’re having this conversation, let’s discuss acceptance of melanin in our community - how do we as South Asians treat other South Asians with richer skin tones? Colourism is a huge problem and continues through South Asian households and relationships. If we want to move forward as a community, we must acknowledge that there are various types of South Asian groups, some of which derive from the black community, and colourism exists to amplify paler skin tones but diminish richer tones. It is essential to break down colourism or any sentiments towards it and work towards a more collaborative and accepting community. How can we have these conversations and what can we do to breakdown these thoughts in desi households? If you have any resources, tips or stories about colourism and tackling it, please share them. It is crucial that we make a change in our community - change starts with us.

What I find the most disappointing is the lack of substantial connections and communications between individuals of different faiths, politics, countries, socioeconomic classes, and so on.
Despite our global communication network, most people don’t even know the existence of the common struggles of people that pass them by in the streets every day because we limit ourselves to the bubble of our personal experiences.
There are still people who havn't directly experienced it themselves that ever come to learn of the levels of abuse that sex workers face, the never ending body pains physical laborers accumulate, the hunger of having no food for days, the struggles to escape an illegal addiction, the inhumanity of living in a capsule apartment that could fit in a closet, the terror of being forced by custom or law to marry the person who raped you, the fear of being shot at or bombed, and so much more.
These difficulties still exist for people all around the world, both in the rich countries and the poor, yet widespread action to solve these problems is extremely rare. Even if your mindset is to solve the problems at home before the problems abroad, there is an enormous mountain to move and a dearth of people and funds to move it. Plenty of the issues we face could be greatly reduced or solved if relatively simple actions were taken by enough of the population, but people don’t know about these problems, or don’t know how to take action.
We have the technological capability to connect the brightest minds around the world to brainstorm solutions, to perform complex calculations and to send messages to almost every individual in a country in less than a second. What we lack is the societal drive to take action. Our modern society does not pass along the message or organize action.
We lack contemporary education in our schools, we lack leadership, we lack communication, we lack cooperation, and we lack the understanding of the fact that we only truly lack these things. Fundamentally, our problems stem from a people problem. That is what I find disappointing..
