ras-al-ghul-is-dead:

A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s  wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society.  Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.  

Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:

I don’t know who any of these folks are.

They were tourists I presume.

But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.

"Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."

(Laughs.)

There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.

The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”

One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.

There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”

"One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’

I’m just gonna keep reblogging this because this is truly how white America works. Like people have their weddings on plantations, Blackface was and still is a major source of entertainment and the biggest movie of all time was Gone With the Wind. White America will kill Black people and then smile and laugh and enjoy their day it sickens me that we’re treated this way.

I’m not sure I’ll ever understand how people can find cheese made from plant foods ‘weird’ and ‘gross’ but not be at all phased by eating cheese made from the mammary secretions of a cow.

Simple Vegan Carrot Croquettes Recipe by NappyHeadVegan

Since relocating to Baltimore, I have been surrounded by people that have a great love for crab cakes and salmon cakes. So I came up with a simple alternative to share with my friends and family. It’s very simple. Give it a try!!

Ingredients

8 regular size carrots, sliced 1/4 inch thick
2 1/4 finely crushed toasted breadcrumbs, divided
1 stalk of celery, chopped
1 mini orange pepper, chopped
2 tbsps Old Bay Seasoning
1 tsp cumin
1 tbsp Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
2 tbsps mustard
Olive Oil

Instructions

Rinse and slice carrots. Boil carrots for 45 mins or until soft.
Drain water from carrots.
Place carrots in a large bowel and mash.
Add 1 cup of bread crumbs, celery, pepper, Old Bay seasoning, cumin, Bragg’s and mustard to carrots and mix until blended.
Put in 1 1/4 bread crumbs in a shallow bowl.
Scoop out 2 tbsps of carrot mix to form 1 1/2 inch croquette with your hands.
Place each formed croquette into breadcrumb bowl and cover with crumbs (one at a time).
Place croquettes on parchment paper or cookie sheet.
In a large skillet let 2 tbsps of olive oil heat and add croquettes.
Let croquettes brown on each side.
Let cool and pair with your desired side dishes.
