"across cultures, darker people suffer most. why?"

What if Hamas and Islamic Jihad dug tunnels beneath the entirety of the Gaza Strip—they clearly did not, but let us assume they did for the sake of argument. According to Israel’s logic, all of Gaza’s 1.8 million Palestinians are therefore human shields for being born Palestinian in Gaza. The solution is to destroy the 360-kilometer square strip of land and to expect a watching world to accept this catastrophic loss as incidental. This is possible only by framing and accepting the dehumanization of Palestinian life. Despite the absurdity of this proposal, it is precisely what Israeli society is urging its military leadership to do. Israel cannot bomb Palestinians into submission, and it certainly cannot bomb them into peace.
"Because you deserve the peace that will come after this battle is won, and it will be won, but only minute by minute .. we must learn to let go of the unconquerable,
Because we can all come together in later years to laugh in their faces; because we will be able to show them that even though they had all the power and strength and ruthless cunning, even though we were only helpless, innocent, dependent children, we will have beaten them at the game they so smugly thought they had mastered”
reasons not to kill yourself, for ritual abuse survivors.

Okay, ladies and gents! The Illegal Kickstarter is up. I am the artist and the wonderful princelesscomic (Jeremy Whitley) is the writer!
Please back it and spread the word. Every rebog and dollar counts. Thanks everybody!
"Illegal" follows the story if Gianna Delrey, an undocumented immigrant living in the shadows of an enormous city. All citizens received a microchip that tracks their movements and stores the history of their lives. Anybody without a chip is an illegal. They can’t be tracked, but if they’re caught, they wind up in the deportation camps - where the wait to be deported has become so long that most people die just trying to survive.
I recently have written and produced a web series about five witches who mysteriously get powers, become witches and have to cope with each other and the forces that lie amongst them. I debuted my web series promo episode and wanted to link at least the trailer in hopes you’ll check it out!
if you like, please share with the community!
All the best!
fuzzy haired terrified girl is running
viscera in grain mind racing
rubber shoe rhinestone bow
clip of hair blasted feet
ribbons smoking surround her
absorbing all consequence triggered
behind her cemented future
generations in shopping bags
sold out pawns crossing rivers
of themselves a course off all heads
sadness shouldered over cast lead sky and sea
who does violence turn into
her heart is crater analysis
a body of proof disregarded
balance of a world off axis
beauty molting steel
a girl a flame consuming
don’t tell her it’s not her fault
don’t speak of worth of value
don’t mention wrong and rights
she can’t hear you and you
always look away she can’t
afford picking up less of herself
each time maze set up to lose what’s left
she gathers clippings plants shrapnel
scraps of sense floral fragile damaged
wild eyed terrified girl is running
searching for living room
ringing bells for ghosts to follow
