I love when NPR talks about “democracy protestors” in China and “rioters” in Ferguson.
These are our liberal allies, tho.
The ones that LIKE Black people, right?
Andrew Birkin: "This was taken at my mother’s dressing table. I was about 17 years old and about to hitchhike across America. I wanted a photograph to remember Jane by. She looks so different here, she was still wearing the heavy make-up of the Sixties."
70% of the population lives in places where gardening is not a realistic option, so this seems kind of geared toward children in areas with open land… I mean, I like this in theory and practical knowledge needs more room in schools, buuuut. Still, most kids in the poor folk apartments I lived in wouldn’t be able to utilize the skills outside the classroom, so this seems like it might isolate a lot of children and create yet another reason for inner city kids to feel detached from school. We can’t keep creating universal school plans that don’t represent the varied realities students will live in.
in the 10 to 12 homes i lived in while i was still in school my fam only had the opportunity to garden in 2 of them so even though i love gardening and i’m a big advocate for more community gardens i laughed when i saw this picture. it’s a nice idea in theory but…….
