dwainleland You can take a boy outta the #country, but you can't take the country outta the boy. #goodmorning

Many of you may not know this, but I am a descendant of #Oklahoma's #WesternCherokee on my Mom's side (#poor #farmers), and #BlackIrish from #Arkansas' #OzarkMountains on my Dad's side (military grunts, unionized factory workers and small-town preachers). My roots are in the hard-working but impoverished #AmericanSouth, and I therefore know what it means to have just enough to survive. At the heart of it all is an abiding sense of spiritual love and humility that transcends money, designer flash, and superficial beauty. These are the elements I try to bring to every picture, because there is so much more to human life than #muscle, #fashion, and #sex. Those are available in any magazine or website in a moment's time. But what lasts? Our #spirits, and our connections to each other.

You can pose me in the finest silks, most expensive accessories, and illuminate the curves of my body in the most sensual photographs, but I will always be, and try to show, this man, the real Dwain who smokes #Virginia #cavendish #tobacco from a #Missouri #CorncobPipe, in a #StrawHat much like the one his #Texan grandpa wore when he plowed the fields on his tractor in the hot sun. Though I am many things my ancestors were not (an #academic, a #model, and a #professional), and though I have more resources than they did, they will always be a part of me, and remind me of what is truly important in life: #TrueLove, #SpiritualDepth, #Humility, and #HelpingOthers. This is for them.

Sé-lah.

  •   kurth003 @dwainleland : I had an English prof who remarked that pipe smoking was one step in developing 'character.' Also, that last vice my father has at 87. Nice olfactory associations! 😎 7d
  •   bearlycuddles Very nice words....elequont as allways 7d
  •   saminthemirror @dwainleland at first I admired you because your body, then because your academics, and now because your inner roots, and now I know that altogether the three shape that particular light inside of you... 7d

nihungkhan "The study details four surgical experiments in particular, dating from 1833 to 1858, that doctors performed on slaves. One, for example, involved severing 'healthy looking brain' from a slave with a head injury, killing him. ... The physician and slave owner William Aiken of Winnsboro, North Carolina, reported an 1852 experiment on a slave named Lucinda, who suffered from a bony growth around her right eye. Aiken and other doctors disfigured her by boring holes in her head — without chloroform, a gas that was used at the time for anesthesia — to remove the growth. ... 'Under the skin, they knew on some level that people were the same. So they used [slaves] in medicine,' Savitt said. 'They knew that, but still saw slaves as different from other people. I struggle with the question every time I'm asked to explain it.'"

  •   behindthenetra There is an excellent book I would recommend on this called Medical Apartheid by Harriet Washington. I would definitely recommend reading it. 1w
