jfkjean It is a privilege these days to just create, be able to make change and empower those around you. Artists have a responsibly to the eyes that view their work to shed light on the truth, ask questions, challenge their ways of thinking, engage, inspire change. Tonight I'm joining a few friends for a discussion on artists' responsibility to society. If you intend on showing, come early, leave the ego, bring ideas and inspiration. Let's turn this city inside out again. x 2w

jfkjean Al Jazeera published an article a few days ago that is in your best interest to read (if you're not aware of what's happening in Syria). And it's fittingly titled "You probably won’t read this piece about Syria". #staywoke 4w

jfkjean Posted on my blog today: Given what's been going on in America over the last few months, there has been a shift in the minds of the oppressed. I've been struggling over the last few weeks to figure out how to sum up the latter half of 2014. I now understand that my only obligation here is to aid in the seemingly never-ending fight for the empowerment and liberation of Black people and other people of color.

Which means learning from and educating other men or standing in solidarity with women for their liberation and equality. Poor or wealthy, younger or older, queer, transgender, whatever your faith, even if we've never crossed paths, I fight for you as well. We've had our ancestors dedicate their lives for us to enjoy the liberties that we do today. If we lose track of that, we can't expect to continue moving forward and evolve as human beings.

In closing, if you find that asking for basic human rights to be problematic for you, that's okay. Just do the both of us a favor and unfollow me from your respective social media platforms. "Align with and prioritize the women and people of color around you the power to self-liberate is rooted in our kinship." - Ayesha Siddiqi

jfkjean Urm, hmm...this my friends is what you can call a tone deaf response to a senseless tragedy that could have been avoided if not for biased advertising, reporting, etc. such as this before your eyes. If you truly believe in the right to free speech, how about allowing Muslims to practice their religion or for women to wear their hijab's without persecution? All they want is to live like human beings in a so called "democracy", no? Or not spreading lies and hate, continuously labeling Muslims as terrorists? See how this rhetoric holds weight globally and affects people of color, especially in America, amirite? So until then Gatestone Institute (and The New York Times), have a seat and try again because your rights to free speech certainly are not "under attack", whether you can see it or not. 3mon
