There are Irish children growing up in Direct Provision. All that talent and potential being suppressed. For what? So we don't feel uncomfortable? It's holding us back. Let those families thrive. Ireland is their home now. They should be allowed to feel proud of it.
not to be the white asshole who just got here five minutes ago & is already like "I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU DIDN'T KNOW THIS, GOD, MEGAN," but in researching my book I learned some stuff history class omitted which might be helpful to other white folks, specifically about Fred Hampton.
It’s a long thread, but we need all the education we can get:
One of the things that distinguish human beings from animals is that we don't just rely on our "instincts". We think about the possible consequences of our actions. We look at the facts. We sometimes make personal sacrifices for the greater good. We question our selfish impulses.
Jack B. Yeats (1871-1957) Return of the Wanderer (n.d.). Yeats never gave explanations; allowing the viewer to create one's own meaning. He famously depicted the outsider, the unsettled: the gypsy, the circus performer, the wanderer, in his own unique, poetic way.
If a female octopus is hungry and doesn't want to mate, but the male tries to, she'll let him insert his mating arm, and begin the process before inching closer to him... then she'll strangle him, kill him, and feast on his corpse in her den for a few days.
Female octopus is not here for your shit.
