  2. I really believe that applying poetry, or language in general, to trauma is the ultimate act of reclaiming. Naming something gives you a sort of ownership over it (hey, colonialism did it all the time, haha), so choosing words that identify your experience makes it less of this looming unknown that has you at its mercy. It makes everything less ‘something that happened to me’ and more ‘experience/story that belongs to me,’ you know?

    If Wal-Mart Paid Its Employees a Living Wage, How Much Would Prices Go Up? (2:02)

    This video crunches the numbers on how much Walmart, the single biggest beneficiary of the food stamp economy, might have to raise prices across the board to help a typical worker earn a living wage.

    This video was created by Slate magazine and Marketplace. It’s part of a series entitled The Secret Life of a Food Stamp.

…exploring the relationship between African American and Native peoples of Virginia, she unraveled the story of…a racial divide that the Civil Rights movement has never eroded.
