I’ve seen a few fashion posts trying to expand the “Marie Antoinette is not Victorian” rant, but this stuff can get complicated, so here is a semi-comprehensive list so everyone knows exactly when all of these eras were.

Please note that this is very basic and that there are sometimes subcategories (especially in the 17th century, Jacobean, Restoration, etc)

And people wonder WHY I complain about History/Art History periodization. Note how much overlap there is to the above “eras”, and how many exceptions and extensions there are to these categories.

Oh, and by the way…

I’m so upset, angry and just completely disgusted about this story!

An Edmond teenager faces a possible life in prison sentence after authorities say they learned about shocking crimes he allegedly committed on an African mission trip.

The suspect was volunteering at a Kenyan children’s home when he allegedly raped and molested a number of young children.

According to court records, 19-year-old Matthew Durham confessed to raping several young girls, forcing some boys to perform oral sex on him and even making other kids watch.

“This is a young man in our community that made choices to exploit children in an orphanage,” said United States Attorney Sanford Coats. “It’s a true tragedy all the way around.”

The 19-year-old suspect traveled overseas with a group called Upendo.

Upendo is an organization that assists neglected Kenyan kids by providing food, housing, clothes and religion.

While Durham volunteered to travel overseas several times over the last two years, on his last visit, the criminal complaint alleges, “Durham requested to stay at the children’s home in an ‘overflow bunk’ rather than at an offsite facility.”

During that visit, several alleged victims claimed Durham “often touched them in a sexual manner or told them to touch themselves while he watched.”

Once confronted, Durham allegedly came clean.

“A caretaker at the orphanage noticed something wasn’t right and confronted Mr. Durham. He admitted to some of the acts,” said Coats.

The affidavit continues, “The victims are believed to be both boys and girls between the ages of four and nine, at least one of whom is HIV positive.”

Prosecutors say while the alleged sex crimes were committed overseas, Durham can be held accountable for the crimes in Oklahoma.

Durham is being held without bond.

This is so cool! But what country are they from? “Africa” is really vague.

Their names are Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and Bello Eniola and they’re from Lagos, Nigeria. There’s a neat video about them here.

#when will people start giving names to young non-white scientists??#bc that shit is getting old

boost the fuck out of this, and make sure you include their goddamn names and country of origin.

Nope, Racism is Not the “Old” Anything.

For his 21st century protest inspired video, not only does he quote Nelson Mandela and refer to him as ‘Mr Madiba’ (I rarely hear non-South Africans use that name), The-Dream visits the Cape Town township of Langa (the same one Solange filmed this video in) to capture a music video that would be the soundtrack to this TIME Magazine cover

But the conscious message in his song us overshadowed not by the questionable placement of the child at the beginning with ‘AFRICA’ painted largely on his chest, or the grey and hazy tint of the video, nor by the billows of smoke that occasionally fill the screen, but by the allusion to faux-protest group FEMEN and signs that boldly state “classism is the racism”.

Because it isn’t.

Black people’s struggles are not the litmus test for all systems of oppression. Blackness is not something that can be transferred to anyone that isn’t. Saying that classism is somehow a replacement for racism is not only ignorant to the fact racism still exists (or isn’t the ‘old’ anything), but that the relationship between classism and racism isn’t one of parallel lines that never meet, but one that often intersects.

With him referencing Mandela and Marvin, filming this video in a country where the legacy of apartheid still looms, and relating the violence in Chicago to what’s happening elsewhere, it’s surprising and shocking that such a statement would make it into such a video.

I was horrified by this music video.  It is dreadful.  I started out baffled then annoyed and then furious.  To ever get it so so wrong.
