    Young demonstrators regulating themselves. Removed someone who they say has been know to agitate crowds.”

    I needed to come back from hiatus to encourage those of you who want to keep up with what’s really happening in Ferguson to look to those who are actually there.

    Take a moment to follow Antonio French on twitter and see what he sees. The video above is from his vine. Also an important follow in this moment.

    Please remember that there are truths and then there are whole truths. The truth is, there are people who take great pleasure in getting folks riled up. The whole truth is that those people are being peacfully dealt with. The truth is, there are looters. The whole truth is that those looters were all of ten people, many of which weren’t from Ferguson. The whole truth is that hundreds upon hundreds have protested peacefully while breaking no laws only to have wooden pellets, rubber bullets, pepper balls and tear gas thrown in their faces by a racist gang who uses military style tactics. A racist gang who should be interviewing the key witness but haven’t “Gotten around to it” yet.

    These are not the dogs of Selma. This is the violence of racism. Stop calling it everything but what it is.

    This is racism.

Requin and Selendri from the Gentlemen Bastards series by scottlynch78I’ve always loved these two and their dangerous superiority <3
I drew them for Scott Lynch since he was coming to Malmö for a book signing. It was today and it was awesome! I met both Lynch himself and Elizabeth Bear, and they were both really sincere and charming, it was a really cool experience! Got my books signed as well! :>

    I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone.

    Kamoya Kimeu

    [x], [x]

    Yet another Paleontologist of Color! And a really important one, too,

    Kamoya Kimeu (c. 1940-) began life in Kenya as a peasant, but was hired as a labourer on the paleontology expeditions of Louis and Mary Leakey. As soon as he got over the taboo of digging up human remains (associated with witchcraft in his culture), he distinguished himself as a particular talent for discovering and identifying fossils.

    He went on to become the right-hand man for Richard Leakey's expeditions, then took over operations, and was named the National Museums of Kenya's curator for all prehistoric sites in Kenya.

    His discoveries include a nearly complete Homo habilis skeleton in 1959, as well as Turkana Boy, the most complete Homo erectus skeleton ever found, in 1984.Two fossil primates have been named after him: Kamoyapithecus hamiltoni and Cercopithecoides kimeui.

    Sadly, almost all the credit for Kenyan paleoanthropology has gone to the British-born Leakey family. Let’s change that, shall we?
