  2. It’s a serious self-care after a long week of #communitybuilding and as I head into a really difficult and emotionally challenging week. Just like #healingthroughfood, and in light of #breastcancer awareness, I thought I would share my philosophy on body care. Many conventional products contain known #carcinogens like parabens, various colorants or things that are clog up our skin and pores like mineral oil. Our skin is the body’s largest organ and absorbs everything we put on it. It’s important to look at the labels and look for things that are unfamiliar to you, it’s not a stretch to say that in many cases you should be able to eat what you put on your skin. So many products that are targeted to women are poisonous to our bodies. Build up of toxins in our system can make periods more painful, increase overall fatigue, slow healing or make you sick. I like ingredients like #aloe, #coconutoil, #sheabutter #rosewater, #teatreeoil. I try to make my own as often as possible but when I can’t, these are a bunch of my favorites. I love the @sheamoisture4u everything. The beauty supply store at #bloor & dufferin has an entire section of ethical hair and body care. Not tested on animals, made from natural ingredients and/or harvested sustainably and targeted at people of color. I welcome anyone to share natural products, or combinations that you leave. We are all scientists in our own right with our own tried and tested formulations. What works for one may not work for another, so trust yourself and body first and foremost.

The prison-industrial complex is just a myth…right?

Jesus he didn’t even have us do the damn math. He just said it.

…yeah. I suppose there’s no point in finding flowery rhetoric for it. “Putting people in jail is good for business” is pretty much the size of it.

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

"From 2006 to 2012, a white police officer killed a black person at least twice a week in this country." - MHP

Melissa Harris-Perry gives a heart-wrenching tribute to the deaths of black men that have occurred at the hands of police in the past decade.
