In an attempt to balance affordable and beautiful, designer Denis Svirid takes us around this modern and refreshing apartment in Odessa, Ukraine. A place that any bachelor would be proud to call home. With a small apartment in the city being the only viable and affordable option for many young people, Denis has put his remarkable interior skills together at this apartment.
Despite being small, the apartment has two floors. Private quarters, bedroom, bathroom, and a dressing room are located below the mansard roof. Above, there are white-painted living chambers with dark-hued furniture and subtle lighting system. The upper floor is what makes the apartment feel modern and with the wooden ground floor, it creates an interesting and rare combination.
Raising Racists: The Socialization of White Children in the Jim Crow South by Kristina DuRocher
White southerners recognized that the perpetuation of segregation required whites of all ages to uphold a strict social order — especially the young members of the next generation. White children rested at the core of the system of segregation between 1890 and 1939 because their participation was crucial to ensuring the future of white supremacy. Their socialization in the segregated South offers an examination of white supremacy from the inside, showcasing the culture’s efforts to preserve itself by teaching its beliefs to the next generation.
In Raising Racists: The Socialization of White Children in the Jim Crow South, author Kristina DuRocher reveals how white adults in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries continually reinforced race and gender roles to maintain white supremacy.
I was recently thinking about this topic because of the whole lesbian spermbank incident. Those women suggest that raising their Black child is difficult because they live in a white racist community. I don’t doubt this. But why did they originally plan on raising a white child in a racist community in the first place? Like, that’s not okay either. Of all the things people try to shield their white children from, they seem to be totally okay with their children drowning in whiteness and overt racism.
It also reminds me of this scene at the grocery store between a Black woman and a white guy many weeks ago. I think he may have almost ran her over or something (I walked up after it had already begun so I’m unsure), and the Black woman was going off… cursing him out and he had his whole family in the car. He at first stayed calm, saying the lady shouldn’t be cursing because he had kids in the car. But after a while they both were at each other. I was totally on the guy’s side because they lady was going off and making a scene and just doing the absolute most. But before the white guy pulls off though, he yells “WELFARE CHAMP!!!” out the window.
Now, if it’s not okay for your children to hear curse words from a random stranger, how in the world is it okay for your children to hear overt racism from their dad!?? their fucking dad.. the one that’s supposed to guide them.
It just makes me think how normal racism is for white kids to grow up in. Like, at least racism is around all the time, and as a Black kid, my parents would abhorring it.. not upholding it.
It’s like no matter how thoroughly we change the media and education in schools, all little Cody and Emily have to do is listen to the words coming out of their parents mouth to pick up white supremacy.
Anyways, I’m really interested in this book.
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.

Am I the only one who feels this way?
Good to know I’m not alone
All. The. Time.
I also hate having to simplify my responses because I know they won’t [seek to truly] understand. It minimizes the weight of my goals for the sake of other’s folks quick-comprehension & short attention spans, so I just say “I am going to change the world” and allow them to think I am “crazy” or “too ambitious” (their words, not mines). But for those who are genuinely interested in diggin a bit deeper, that discomfort flushes away and I GO IN.

The dap, the fist bump, the black power handshake. It goes by many names and carries many meanings. Photographer LaMont Hamilton is devoting his research fellowship with us to unearthing stories about the dap for his project Five on the Black Hand Side.
