Detroit Recycles 2012: Everything you need to know (by DetroitRecycles)

the thing i love best about this is that it’s one of the very few recycling PSA’s that highlights the voices of black people (and other people of color) in the environmental justice movement. usually recycling especially is something that almost ALWAYS shown as a thing white hipsters do, and that they do as a part of a “green economy”—that is, white hipsters use recycling as a way to demonstrate what good consumers they are—or: to reinforce their identity as hipsters.

recycling in detroit is about survival. it’s about getting rid of that goddamn incinerator that 1. makes the air stink all through detroit and 2. makes everybody sick (asthma rates in particular are horrible). increasing the demand for recycling systems throughout detroit increases the likelihood that the incinerator will be shut down by shifting it from an incinerator to a recycling facility. which of course, increases the health of everybody, including our environment!

Things I would like to see (video game edition)

sourcedumal:

-More POC spearheading their own titles.

-More women spearheading their own titles

-Fat women who can kick ass and are a love interest.

-Incubi. Sexy, nearly naked incubi. I’m tired of seeing Succubi type creatures EVERYWHERE. They are tired, over done, and played out.

-More LGBTQIA characters that aren’t sex workers.

-A game to which, if you can choose gender, have the option of picking an androgynous or agender type character that has gender neutral pronouns of some sort

My Gender and Womens Studies professor let us in on a little secret today.

Education and the jobs within education are going to be gone soon. GONE. It’s an unfair system that messes up your life. She linked us to an artice that I can’t actually access on this computer- the school’s wifi blocks it. because it’s the truth. It’s called something like “PhD, now with foodstamps”. It’s extremely difficult to be a professor nowadays. They take the weaker, younger, more inexperienced ones first, and pay them less, and put so much work on them that they want to leave, then give the job to someone already in the system with tenure or something, i don’t know, it’s ridiculous.

Now, I’ve wanted to go into education for a while, now. But…I’m having second thoughts. My teacher actually came up to me and told me to go into art, illustration, graphic design, and animation.

She said that at this point in time, and where things are headed, I have a much better chance at getting hired at an animation studio than becoming a teacher with pay that’s more than minimum wage.

California’s minimum wage is $8.00 an hour.

She makes $10.

Ten.

A professor.

With a PhD.

At one of the best universities in the country.

Let that sink in.

The system is fucked, okay. It’s fucked and it’s awful.

Where the hell do those exorbitant tuitions go?

This is the article the OP mentions, I believe: 

The Ph.D. Now Comes With Food Stamps
