O Espelho de Mogli, de Olivier Schrauwen 



Editado pela editora MMMNNNRRRG
Pegando no Livro da Selva de Rudyard Kipling, quer dizer, apenas no cenário e o nome da personagem, Olivier Schrauwen apresenta-nos uma tragicomédia entre o encontro de um símio e um menino selvagem, numa Banda Desenhada que não usa palavras e que emprega estéticas gráficas com cheiros do passado sem que isso afecte o seu real valor contemporâneo que faz dele, segundo muitos especialistas como é um dos cinco autores de banda desenhada de vanguarda mais importantes no panorama mundial actual… O autor flamengo emprega espelhos deformados para reflectir sobre o papel do Homem no Mundo e a fina fronteira que separa o homem do animal. Este livro é um “remake” com um novo tratamento das cores, aumento de páginas e de formato, de um livro saído em 2011 que foi seleccionado para os Prémios do Festival de BD de Angoulême.

Yemoja: Gender, Sexuality, and Creativity in the Latina/o and Afro-Atlantic Diasporas, Release Date: November 2013
This is the first collection of essays to analyze intersectional religious and cultural practices surrounding the deity Yemoja [called Iemanjá in Brazil and Yemayá in Cuba, among other names]. In Afro-Atlantic traditions, Yemoja is associated with motherhood, women, the arts, and the family. This book reveals how Yemoja traditions are negotiating gender, sexuality, and cultural identities in bold ways that emphasize the shifting beliefs and cultural practices of contemporary times. Contributors come from a wide range of fields—religious studies, art history, literature, and anthropology—and focus on the central concern of how different religious communities explore issues of race, gender, and sexuality through religious practice and discourse. The volume adds the voices of religious practitioners and artists to those of scholars to engage in conversations about how Latino/a and African diaspora religions respond creatively to a history of colonization. 
Love this, but why so expensive though? $90? How is this even accessible to Afro Latin@s?
This critique is on point. SUNY usually releases paperbacks at $19.95, yet that is a large sum for many readers, and sometimes new books cost even more. I will be trying to get an electronic format copy through my campus library to post at least a chapter or two in the fall.
The introduction is here. A preview of much of the book can be seen and read for free here.

“Ahora que lo pienso, la idiotez debe ser eso: poder entusiasmarse todo el tiempo por cualquier cosa que a uno le guste, sin que un dibujito en una pared tenga que verse menoscabado por el recuerdo de los frescos de Giotto en Padua.  La idiotez debe ser una especie de presencia y recomienzo constante: ahora me gusta esta piedrita amarilla, ahora me gusta L’année dernière à Marienbad, ahora me gustas tú, ratita, ahora me gusta esa increíble locomotora bufando en la Gare de Lyon, ahora me gusta ese cartel arrancado y sucio.  Ahora me gusta, me gusta tanto, ahora soy yo, reincidentemente yo, el idiota perfecto en su idiotez que no sabe que es idiota y goza perdido en su goce, hasta que la primera frase inteligente lo devuelva a la conciencia de su idiotez y lo haga buscar presuroso un cigarrillo con manos torpes, mirando al suelo, comprendiendo y a veces aceptando porque también un idiota tiene que vivir, claro que hasta otro pato u otro cartel, y así siempre.”

Empowering Black August

What white liberals fail to understand about gun control is that the only places that have strictest gun control laws are areas with high a concentration of people of color.  The rules exist because they don’t want people of color, especially black people to have the right to protect themselves.  Reagan signed an anti-gun law back when he was governor of California because he didn’t want the Black Panthers to be able to protect themselves and their neighborhood.  Black men are arrested and jailed in such high numbers because it too takes away their right to own a gun and it also takes away their right to vote.  Look at Ferguson right now.  How the hell does that city have so few representatives of the black community on their police force.  It’s a systematic denial of rights, and extermination of a group of people that aren’t allowed to protect themselves.  If they get upset and try to protect themselves, they are portrayed in the media as thugs.

This is shit that White Liberals don’t want to ever admit.  This is why when someone ask what my political beliefs are I would be insulted by being called a Liberal.  I’m a pro-gun (especial for groups of people that aren’t afforded protect of “the law” that others do receive) Socialist.  Liberals do nothing but piggyback on capitalism’s back while they live in their nice houses, and everyone else suffers.
