Some stories…

“If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend’s or of thine own were: any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee.”

unnecessary news from earth

dnm3 the picture of the victims and their families

37 innocent people have been killed at the Ankara massacre, 13 March 2016. In these days their funerals have been made. There were the react and angry outcries against PKK terrorist organization and AKP’s policies. In here I’d like to share some of them. Many stories have been left behind them. And I know also anything cannot be told enough for their stories for their familes and friends.

Elvin Bugra Aslan, age 21, student, he was killed at Ankara 13 March
His uncle said at the funeral with crying: Elvin has been a victim of your dirty politics. Put my words to your headlines!
His mother said at the funeral with crying: My son’s murderer is one vampire. He turned off the light of my son’s eyes. But all will stay into the darkness. Because I will flame the spark. You…

Success is defined as white and male – a new school curriculum could change that

The following article deals with the issues of sex and race inequality in the UK, but the same is true here, in America, and maybe even more so!

Media Diversified

by Maya Goodfellow

Lord of the Flies, Animal Farm and Great Expectations. What do these books have in common? They were all written by white men and they’re all set texts on GCSE exam syllabuses. From politics to the media, white men dominate so much in society – school curriculums are no exception. Since September 2015, women penned just 31% of texts across all GCSE and A Level reading lists, while writers of colour are responsible for just 5% of texts in some modules. A new campaign set up by a school in East London is asking the government to right this wrong.

But it’s not just English that’s skewed towards concentrating on the male and pale; the history curriculum is guilty of this too. It “marginalises” Black History, either pushing it to the sidelines or skating over it altogether. Last year in a report by the…

I Will No Longer Sing The Blues!

Billie Holiday singing the blues

I will no longer sing the blues,
drugs, I must never, ever abuse.
If I don’t love me and I know I do,
how can I say that I love you?

My child, my child, come here to me.
Let me tell you my life’s story.
I was born on the poorest side of town.
White folks would look me up and down.

They never knew what to make of me.
My skin tone was all they could see.
I was sent to a school so far away.
I had armed guards on that very first day.

They called me names that I can hear still.
I would be dead if looks could kill.
I tell you child, I done seen it all,
‘Colored only’ written in a racist’s scrawl.

I’ve seen the Klan burn a cross in my yard,
and many a Negro body, lynched and charred.
Oh child…
