Ancient Egyptian Woman with 70 Hair Extensions Discovered

She was not mummified, her body simply being wrapped in a mat. When archaeologists uncovered her remains they found she wore “a very complex coiffure with approximately 70 extensions fastened in different layers and heights on the head,” writes Jolanda Bos, an archaeologist working on the Amarna Project, in an article recently published in the Journal of Egyptian Archaeology.

Darren Wilson testified before the grand jury. Here’s why he won’t be charged.

rafi-dangelo:

And if he is charged, he won’t be found guilty, but I doubt it will even get that far.

Shaun King is an author, humanitarian, and motivator behind 100 Life Goals, and yesterday he spelled out how the response following Michael Brown's murder has been a coverup from the start, and everyone from the police force to the Governor of Missouri is implicated.  If you aren't upset yet, you will be by the time you finish.

Most of my future children tag is cute brown children being fabulous and clearly belonging to me in spirit, but I’m making an exception for this tweet because if I don’t raise my kids to give that exact same response, then I have failed as a parent.
Who is this woman and can I send her a thank-you gift basket and a Black Parenting Award?  This is why it is imperative that we teach our children real history outside of textbooks constructed by, written for, and approved by white men whose re-telling of history conveniently glosses over atrocities and minimizes suffering.

I want to go to that school and set fire to every history book in the building.

Where are the protests for trans women of color murdered this summer?

rafi-dangelo:

Michael Brown.  John Crawford.  Eric Garner.

America knows these names because, thankfully, the media hasn’t let us forget them.  These are young Black men murdered this summer because this country has a problem with race, prejudice, bias, and an assumption of guilt in respect to people of color.

Mia Henderson.  Alejandra Leos.  Tiffany Edwards.

We don’t know these names because the media isn’t paying attention.  These are young trans women of color who’ve also been murdered this summer, but we’re not talking about them.  No one is advocating for the six trans women of color murdered this summer. There are no panel discussions on cable news or articles devoted to investigating their innocence and disproving any basis for a justifiable homicide because trans women — especially trans women of color — are always guilty.  They’re guilty because they dare to exist and their stories don’t make for gripping headlines in a country reluctant to even acknowledge their existence.
