"Brown eyed people are responsible for the fact that you have electricity. Many of the components for generating and transmitting electricity were invented by brown eyed people.
Brown eyed people gave us our alphabet. Brown eyed people gave us our numeration system. Brown eyed people gave us the paper on which we write these anonymous letters to me that tell me that brown eyed people are inferior.
Brown eyed people are the originators, the ones who founded every major religion on Earth. No white people have ever founded a major religion.
Now you need to realize the contributions that have been made to society, to civilization by brown eyed people, by PEOPLE OF COLOR.
I’m talking about people of color here folks. And most of us are not aware of those things because we live in a racist society.
And because we are educated by a racist school system that only teaches us about white contributions.”
- Jane Elliot on the Oprah Winfrey Show panel on racism in 1992.

Saint Valentine’s Day 2014 from Plaza Altamira:
Love conquers, red differences fall, let us pray!
Young Venezuelans decided to protest in the streets against the murders of students during the February 12th march, and to demand liberty for those wrongly detained. They chose to pay in advance for the tear gas and water hoses through love.
In a country that had always, always lived in peace (at least during your lifetime), it’s fair and necessary to erase 15 years of division and pray for a future for our tricolor and Gloria Al Bravo Pueblo. Let’s be better Venezuelans! (x)

If Israel were to lay down their guns tomorrow, there would be no war. If Palestine were to lay down theirs, there would be no more Palestine.
