Ida B. Wells: Journalist, Newspaper Editor, Anti-Lynching Activist
Ida B. Wells was one of the foremost crusaders against black oppression. This engaging memoir tells of her private life as mother of a growing family as well as her public activities as teacher, lecturer, and journalist in her fight against attitudes and laws oppressing blacks.
Quotes from Ida B. Wells:
“The people must know before they can act, and there is no educator to compare with the press.”
“I had an instinctive feeling that the people who have little or no intelligence or no school training should have something coming into their homes weekly which dealt with their problems in a simple, helpful way…so I wrote in a plain, common-sense way on the things that concerned our people.”
“The mob spirit has grown with the increasing intelligence of the Afro-American.”
“The city of Memphis has demonstrated that neither character nor standing avails the Negro if he dares to protect himself against the white man or become his rival.”
“The nineteenth century lynching mob cuts off ears, toes, and fingers, strips off flesh, and distributes portions of the body as souvenirs among the crowd.”
“The white man’s victory soon became complete by fraud, violence, intimidation and murder.”
“If it were possible, I would gather the race in my arms and fly away with them.”

I will always reblog because there was so much truth to this.
I do try not to blog about Scandal anymore, but ugh, Foley’s addition to the cast makes me so angry, to the point where it’s driven me from the show (seriously, could a poc actor be as bad as Foley and still get work?).
Rhimes is like Mindy Kaling with her white boy crushes, and that’s fine as long as they don’t detract from the product. But… Foley does in a big way.
Hhmm! Forley. I once told you, when I’m irritated I tend to voice my concerns. When enraged, I tend to keep quiet. On Foley, I have maintained my silence…
May I suggest joining me in tweeting Rhimes and Lowy take a gander at Sendhil Ramamurthy? He’s fine, he’s attractive; and personally, he may be wooden but he’s got swag like Columbus Short such that you don’t mind just watching him exist :D.
This is Sendhil
I proceed to spam him existing.
Was he on ‘Heroes’…I tuned in for the whole of 5 minutes.
Fyne is a dime a dozen, I don’t want fyne and wooden. I want fyne plus talent!
i think he is a fine actor who has not been given enough opportunity. he was this show called ‘covert affairs’ and he did really well in that role. but…he is fine though….
Yes to all of the commentary. Loved him on Heroes and would be thrilled if he were on Scandal.
