Malcolm X: Our History Was Destroyed By Slavery 

on March 17, 1963 in Chicago.

see how little we get taught about history - I never had any idea why Malcolm X used the ‘X’. 

How come I didn’t know this

Also that crusty old white man called the named ‘gifted’. Jesus.

'GIFTED' Kill me

It was a moment Anthony Carbajal will never forget: standing on the stage of one of TV’s most popular talk shows, fighting for a cause that touches him and his family profoundly. All while his mom looked proudly on.

Watch Anthony and Ellen do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and see the full interview here.

In a new video from social justice-oriented T-shirt company FCKH8, several Ferguson children lampoon the excuses white people give to avoid getting involved in ending discrimination in America and deliver a call to action to stomp out racism.

Watch the full video and see these kids explain how racism is still a huge part of even getting an interview for a job.

I love Dita

Yessss.



There’s just something about Philadelphia that goes straight to my heart. It’s grimy, while still being artsy. It’s historical while still being hip. It’s young and old. It’s corrupt in parts and in other untainted. At its heart, it is just a tell it like it is blue collar city. Philly is a city that loves you back. My City. I’ll complaint about local government. Joke about what makes Philly, Philly. Really I’ll just adore it.

A Chestnut Hill College Alumna with a degree in Criminal Justice; I’m very passionate about politics and the laws that govern us. A proud feminist; I believe strongly in women equality. I’ll rant about certain problems, and promote issues that I feel passionately about. Not to push my views on others but to start the conversation.

Then there the random, goof, geek, nerd side of this beautiful package; Addicted to Korean Dramas; Bookaholic; Sims 3, Candy Crush and Farm Hero feen. Sarcasm is my second language. At my core is my family. So, if you want to take a look through the Eyes of the Raven wander over to The Blackbird View.
