Greek Mythology: Hades & Persephone 

“Aren’t you afraid of my darkness, my dear?” Hades asked with mischief in his eyes.
“No,” Persephone replied, “You haven’t even seen mine yet.”   kfg



Hecate or Hekate (Greek Ἑκάτη) is a goddess in Greek religion and mythology, most often shown holding two torches or a key and in later periods depicted in triple form. She was variously associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, dogs, light, the Moon, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, necromancy, and sorcery. She is a pre-Olympian chthonic goddess and appears in the Homeric Hymn to Demeter and in Hesiod’s Theogony, where she is promoted strongly as a great goddess. In the post-Christian writings of the Chaldean Oracles (2nd-3rd century CE) she was regarded with (some) rulership over earth, sea and sky, as well as a more universal role as Saviour (Soteira), Mother of Angels and the Cosmic World Soul. She was one of the main deities worshiped in Athenian households as a protective goddess and one who bestowed prosperity and daily blessings on the family. source | edit

“The wildest hath not such a heart as you.
Run when you will, the story shall be changed:
Apollo flies, and Daphne holds the chase;
The dove pursues the griffin; the mild hind
Makes speed to catch the tiger; bootless speed,
When cowardice pursues and valour flies.”  
 ―    William Shakespeare

[ From 1790 to the 1980s, immigrants faced many reatrictions or barriers in gaining citizenship. ]

[ Farmworkers and domestic workers, who were largely minorities, were excluded from the Social Security Act of 1935. ]

[ Minorities often had tip-based professions, which were excluded from minimum-wage protections in 1938. ]

[ Officials in the Office of Veteran Affairs actively denied people of color benefits under the G.I. bill of 1944. ]

America’s wealth gap is split along racial lines — and it’s getting dangerously wider

this article is interesting but they make the critical mistake early on of saying ‘wealth is almost more important than income’ and never revisit that, so their advice at the end is the usual 'save more’ bullshit when poor families already earn so little than a savings account is a luxury they cannot afford, and not, like, raise the minimum wage to $25/hr and require it keep up with inflation, to get everyone out ahead of the poverty line forever.

they also tell us why we never did that in the first place during the progressive era - progress is for whites only.


Vasilisa the Beautiful and Baba Yaga: 

By his first wife, a merchant had a single daughter, who was known as Vasilisa the Beautiful. When the girl was eight years old, her mother died. On her deathbed, she gave Vasilisa a tiny wooden doll with instructions to give it a little to eat and a little to drink if she were in need, and then it would help her.

Baba Yaga is a supernatural being who appears as a deformed and/or ferocious-looking woman. Baba Yaga flies around in a mortar, wields a pestle, and dwells deep in the forest in a hut usually described as standing on chicken legs (or sometimes a single chicken leg).
