october 31- be red!!

"Recent events in the United States have moved us to action. Violence against women is sadly, not a new phenomenon in our country or in the world, however, in the last year, women of color have experienced brutal forms of violence, torture, rape and injustice which have gone unnoticed, received little to no media coverage, or a limited community response.

Uhm ... did you see women of colour?

Did you hear about the "black sheep" of switzerland being kicked out of the Swiss flag?

and of the Nobel laureate biologist calling "africans" genetically less intelligent?!

Racism is becoming legitimized again.

When we started popularizing CRAP like "The Survivors" we had to know we are throwing our support behind Racism, Nazi style!

Up here, a lot of us wear red on Fridays for our troops in Afghanistan, but I'll make sure that I'm wearing it for both on the 31st.
