Gorgeous sunspot in active region 2109 with an unusual bright center. The umbra (dark area) of the sunspot is quite a bit larger than earth… the little granules on the surface about the size of Texas. What a great week for fun in the sun, y’all.

I thought I’d stepped back enough to capture the full length of the plasma ejection on the left… but it was longer than I thought. It was a good day for sun photos.

“…I’m not horrified that a nine-year-old would be shooting a gun. I am appalled and nauseated that guns are now treated as toys, that the most powerful weapons are roadside attractions for tourists and their kids.”

I redid it in color. Black children are denied their innocence and childhood, even in death.

I need feminism because “Who hired a stripper” shouldn’t be the first thing said to me when I walk into a welding job.

M.I.A. shitting on ignorant opinions

This isn’t a Nazi Swastika what so ever, as a JEW I can recognize this unlike some people.

Gonna quote straight from wikipedia here.

It is a symbol among the ancient Celts, Indians, and Greeks,[2]as well as in later Buddhism,[4]Jainism,[5]Hinduism,[6][4]and Nazism,[3][4]among other cultures and religions.[4][2]

The word swastika derives from the Sanskrit root ssu(“Good”),asti(“to be”),[4][6]andka(making)[6]The older term gammadion cross derives from its appearance, which is identical to four Greek gamma letters affixed to each other.

What I find interesting is that this is actually a very very good representation of what can happen when white people culturally appropriate something.

The Swastika, long before the Nazis came about and started brandishing their own bastardization of it, had a strong religious and cultural significance to a LOT of people.

It didn’t represent anything evil, it didn’t represent a dictatorship that perpetuated one of the most well known genocides taught today.

It only started having this horrible association in the 1920’s when the Nazi party appropriated it as for their logo.

White people, white supremacists, taking something with an already well established past and meaning; and placing their own over it.

Because of these people, swastikas that do not have anything to do with the Nazi party are demonized in most people’s eyes because they don’t know any better, because white people wiped out it’s original meaning in white culture.

People seriously need to learn some history.
THIS is the sort of damage that cultural appropriation can do in the long run.

A potential client asked me to design a marketing campaign for his new soap and body products store. I sent him a detailed proposal and my rates.

He responded that it all sounded great, and that he was excited to bring me onboard. But, a few days later, he told me that with the budget…
