Reflecting on Fanon 12/28/2011


By Orlando Green

            People often dwell on Fanon's theory on violence.  Because of this, we will focus on that later.  We will begin with two (2) psychological problems that exist in a colonial setting / relationship.

Before we can start that…what is colonialism?  Historically colonialism is a phenomenon that takes place when groups of people are subjugated by an invading country and ruling class.  The purpose of this…

"Thick Women" Does Not Mean "Fat Women"!!

Resource Based Economy

This was written December 26th 2011

WTF?! "Hard-line Indonesian province shaves mohawks off punk rockers detained at concert"

News straight from the WTF department, courtesy of The Washington Post (via Associated Press): "BANDA ACEH, Indonesia — Police in Indonesia’s most conservative province raided a punk-rock concert and detained 65 fans, buzzing off their spiky mohawks and stripping away body piercings because of the perceived threat to Islamic values.

     We could all be in some deep trouble.

     Of course, this is nothing new, there's always something threatening the peace and health of the people. This new threat is interesting though. It comes from outer space.

    For the last six to seven months I've been engrossed in a study of UFO's and New World Order Conspiracy theory. Both subjucts I have had past knowledge of, so neither subject was new but the things I've learned since are mind blowing_ even if none of it is…

What The Fuck Am I Doing?!

What kind of life am I living?  Who the fuck am I?

Tears at the restaurant today.  My beautiful mom didn't know what to say.  I had no idea.

Yesterday, my professor asked, "B, you alright?  Are you okay?  I was just worried."  Well damn, now I am, too!

After class, my reflection decided to just lay on me.  My husband grabbed the…
