I had no idea they found these off the coast of Cuba.  When you go to Wikipedia the don’t even show the pictures.  Still hiding how we Africans migrated all over the planet. 

Exactly

That is the most irrelevant comment ever.. Why do people always turn everything into a fucking race issue? Calm down you’re only feeding the problem. Who the fuck knows if these were built before the Egypt pyramids and the “Africans” that migrated all over the world might not even be Africans. Shut up with your race bullshit.

How much you wanna bet that had these ruins been Greek or Norse in origin, the commenter wouldn’t have been so pressed about the question of why photos have been withheld…

Mapping the Intensity of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake

These maps come from an atlas that accompanied the 1908 scientific report attempting to explain the causes and effects of the San Francisco earthquake, titled The California Earthquake of April 18, 1906: Report of the State Earthquake Investigation Committee. The two maps use the data that the commission collected to represent the earthquake’s intensity geographically.

Andrew C. Lawson, a prominent geologist who was head of the Department of Geological Science at Berkeley at the time of the quake, headed up the commission. Right after the earthquake, Lawson writes in the preface to the report, the effort to understand the event began:

The scientific men of the state, each on his own initiative, began the work of assembling observations; the more intelligent citizens became persistent in their inquiries as to the nature of the earthquake, its extent and intensity, and the causes in general of such terrible disasters…

"The Untold Renaissance": Ikire Jones Spring/Summer 2014 Lookbook.

It’s all dapper hommes, suave strides and bold prints and patterns in Nigerian designer Wale Oyejide’s Spring/Summer 2014 lookbook for his brand Ikire Jones.

“This collection pays homage to 18th century textiles and tapestries while exploring the absence of persons of color in Medieval and Renaissance-era European art.  Borrowing from the sampling method employed in hip hop culture, each reinvented piece tells an original narrative from the perspective of Africans who have been placed in an alien context.  Through this reverse lens to the past, the present circumstances of individuals who feel displaced and alienated may also be considered.”

Contemporary Art Week!

I absolutely love the concept behind this. Especially: “reverse lens to the past”.

My interests are pretty broad and hard to define but include cities, politics, social issues, sustainability, music, and culture to name a few. Hopefully this will be a place where I can rant about things I ( and hopefully you'll) find interesting or whatever else is on my mind.
