Amazing images. The TIME & Bloomberg Businessweek cover photos were both taken by Scott Olson (Getty Images) who was arrested by the St. Louis PD during the protests and later released. The New Yorker painting was done by New York artist Eric Drooker.

The rate of police killings of black Americans is nearly the same as the rate of lynchings in the early decades of the 20th century.

People expect that this country - which was founded upon genocide, slavery and theft - should just right itself like a sinking ship and ignore the blood stained soil and ghosts. 

Not possible. 

They want you to “never forget” their tragedies but condemn you for wanting things like justice. 

Unreal. AmeriKKKa is unreal.

Day 4 - Black History Month - Susie Carmichael

Debuting in the Rugrats episode "Meet The Carmichaels" (1992), Susie was the first (and only) Black Rugrat to join amongst the ranks of Tommy and the gang.

Susie is the complete antithesis of Angelica Pickles. As Angelica would lie and try to frighten the babies daily, Susie would do the opposite. She is very kind and honest with them, giving them facts about real world objects and events that would otherwise be used in Angelica’s devious arsenal of lies.

For her young age, Susie was quite intelligent and gifted. Skilled in ballet dancing, singing, and even being able to speak and understand French. Making her the envy and rival of Angelica.

In the spin-off series, "All Grown Up", it is revealed that Susie now has become fluent in TEN different languages. Which is noted in the episode "Runaround Susie". Her singing and dancing capabilities have increased substantially, upstaging (her “rival”) Angelica in this areas. It is also shown that Susie is an ace student, as well.

Though there aren’t many facts about her, Susie Carmichael’s character proves that Blacks in cartoons can go beyond the stereotypical archetype. She proves that we are capable of so much beyond what we’re typically portrayed as. She is a great character for young Black children to relate to.
