makerswomen: “Growing up, I always assumed I would go into space. But I knew full well that people expected me to behave a certain way. I bucked the system. I don’t want mothers sayin’ ‘put that mud down, stop doing the because you’re going to ruin your dress.’ You get dirty sometimes. Who cares? You cannot do some of these things and keep your hair all nice.”—Mae Jemison Today’s TechMAKER reached for the stars and then some. Mae Jemison saw the gender and racial discrimination in space exploration, but that didn’t stop her from becoming the very first African-American woman in space. You can see our full interview with Mae Jemison over on MAKERS.

dagwolf: cu-curu-gol: soulsoaker: woman-respecter: soulsoaker: it’s really not. like this is definitely a good use of your high school years but it’s not going to endear you to the AOs I promise a lot of (high tier) colleges are already saying that it will not negatively affect your chances of getting in if you get suspended for peaceful protesting. so like just get suspended and take the days off from school reprocussion free. these are the same colleges who systematically discriminate against mentally ill applicants/students, use an admissions system whose only real purpose was always just perpetrating racism/antisemitism, and profit IMMENSELY from the mass hysteria they create in high school students. this is no more genuine or meaningful than mcdonalds turning the M upside down for women’s day speaking as a college activist, they’re fucking lying. if you admit openly that you participated in a protest that disrupted your school’s ability to function smoothly, then you will not get in. they do not want people on their campuses that know how to organize civil dissent. my entire organizing crew has at some point been tailed by the university cops specifically because of our activism and they’ve tried to arrest some of us on bullshit charges during our occupation of the administration building. every single university administration is involved in shady real estate deals and corporate sponsorships so all you’ll be doing by writing an essay about being suspended for protesting is making sure you don’t get in fucking anywhere (and if you do get into one of those bullshit liberal arts schools like oberlin or bard or something you’ll be paying through your ass since state schools DEF don’t want you). and if you organize struggle on campus while a student, they will also do whatever they can to get you out without a degree should anything you’re involved with cause them any trouble at all. let me tell you from personal experience, unis aren’t into activism. they want obedience and added value.

solarpunkcast: anarchistcuddles: ineversurrender: Kent State University “The Kent State shootings (also known as the May 4 massacre or the Kent State massacre)[3][4][5] were the shootings on May 4, 1970 of unarmed college students by members of the Ohio National Guard at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio during a mass protest against the bombing of Cambodia by United States military forces. Twenty-eight guardsmen fired approximately 67 rounds over a period of 13 seconds, killing four students and wounding nine others, one of whom suffered permanent paralysis.[6][7]” “There was a significant national response to the shootings: hundreds of universities, colleges, and high schools closed throughout the United States due to a student strike of 4 million students,[10] and the event further affected public opinion, at an already socially contentious time, over the role of the United States in the Vietnam War.[11]” Student strike of 4 million students! Let’s do that again lol https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kent_State_shootings Don’t forget that basically half the country thought the students deserved it…
