But Why Can't A Hipster Wear A Headdress? →
lovestranger: So why can’t I wear it? Headdresses promote stereotyping of Native cultures. The image of a warbonnet and warpaint wearing Indian is one that has been created and perpetuated by Hollywood and only bears minimal resemblance to traditional regalia of Plains tribes.

Abolitionist History #4
“…Garrison demanded total commitment to the abolitionist cause. For Garrison, there was no middle ground. In effect he held that those who did not join him in the abolitionist camp were against him and thereby supported slavery.” - Merton. L Dillion - “The Abolitionists: The Growth of a Dissenting Minority”
Abolitionist History #3
“The abolitionists’ bravery seems beyond dispute, for only men and women of great moral courage and independence of mind venture to subvert the dominant practices and values of their age. That they adhered more faithfully than their contemporaries to the principles of justice and freedom associated with one of the greatest western traditions seems equally certain. Nonetheless,...

There is an annoying post going around written from a vegetarian who feels guilt about not being vegan and who instead of being pro-active, chose to lash out. Cool. Vent. That is fine. Societal pressures and personal guilt can suck, I get it. However, a couple of other people have reverted to posting the old line of, “If I can respect what vegans eat, why can’t they just respect me for...
