I remember a time in my life where I was terrified of who I was. I remember a time in my life where I didn’t know how to explain who I was to people. I remember a time in my life where I didn’t know how to speak for my people. I remember my identity being my insecurity. I remember feeling most vulnerable of not understanding if I was more proud to be American or Palestinian. I remember when I lived in Gaza for four months. I remember the dirty children, I remember the shy girls, and the flirty boys. I remember the laughing fathers and loud mothers. I remember the shattering nights healed by the promising sun in the morning. I remember the glass cracking to every bomb exploding. I remember the spoons bending from falling so much to the ground while the house shook. I remember the beach being a place of companionship for both dinners and funerals. I remember leaving. I remember my sister breaking her leg. I remember my other sister needing surgery. I remember my mom falling in a deep ill sleep for a week. I remember my body begging me not to leave. I remember leaving, and I remember it very clear. I remember not wanting to be scared as I was put into machines and through body checks. I remember looking at my mother and telling her to leave me there and I would never come back. I remember saying goodbye to a place where no matter how much oppression, how much depression, and no matter how much they were distressed in a land of so much pressure. Every single soul treasured a day to live in Phalesteen. I remember not ever learning that from America, the land of Opportunity.

I need some advice and this seems to be the only anonymous outlet I can get a good, honest answer from. So I'm a really big fan of nicki minaj and her music. Im white- Italian American. I'm really excited to go see nicki in concert and rap along but a lot of her songs use the n-word several times... I know you can't speak for all black people but how do you personally feel about a white person using the word in that manner? Rapping along at a concert. Thanks, and I hope this isn't overstepping.

Wherever we traveled we’d go into the top commercial gallery and say, ‘What do you have by a woman?’ And they’d say, ‘Nothing.’ And we’d say, ‘Well, that’s what we’re interested in.’

Wilhelmina Holladay reflects on her early days of collecting pieces by women artists. With her husband Wallace, she founded the National Museum of Women in the Arts here in DC, and their personal acquisitions formed the core of the museum’s permanent collection.

"Scratch one flat top!" — Lieutenant Commander Robert E. Dixon, commander of Lexington’​s Dauntless dive bombers.

Japanese light aircraft carrier Shōhō burns fiercely after being on the receiving end of no fewer than 13 bombs and 7 torpedoes from the American carriers Yorktown and Lexington.

Engineering a significant pay raise for tens of millions of Americans would almost surely be much easier than conventional wisdom suggests. Raise minimum wages by a substantial amount; make it easier for workers to organize, increasing their bargaining power; direct monetary and fiscal policy toward full employment, as opposed to keeping the economy depressed out of fear that we’ll suddenly turn into Weimar Germany. It’s not a hard list to implement — and if we did these things we could make major strides back toward the kind of society most of us want to live in.

Seriously you people jumping on the Putin hate-train are pathetic. The guy has absolutely zero influence on American domestic policy and when it comes to foreign policy Russia is far less influential throughout most of the world than the United States is.

"omg Russia kills journalists"



Come on people, get it together. Stop losing sight of the big picture — both of these nations are corrupt. The one you should be worrying about most is the one in your back yard, not the one overseas.
