A university president just gave up a lot of his salary to raise his school’s minimum wage

In some pretty awesome and uplifting news, Kentucky State University’s interim president Raymond Burse has given up more than $90,000 of his nearly $350,000 salary to help raise university workers’ minimum wage to $10.25 an hour.

CULTURAL GENOCIDE:  Before and After photo of a young Cree boy, forced to attend a Canadian “Indian school.” (1910)

Despicable.
Here’s honesty. When you’re 25 and younger they say inexperienced to shut you up. When your 25 and older they say past your prime to shut you up. The whole point is for you to feel either too young or too old or too inexperienced or too weary from experience. Old dogs do learn new tricks. Young rattlesnakes do have better venom. The unskilled lack confidence. The skilled get lazy. Everyone has a hiccup. You want to be something, carve out a space big enough to sit in and get to it. - Dig Yourself (via howitzerliterarysociety)

"This picture of Morehouse graduates drenched in rain yesterday has surprisingly caused quite a stir. Many are saying it’s indicative of Morehouse not having the money or common decency to implement a rain plan. If you see that when you look at this picture, I’m going to politely take the liberty to call you a cynic. To me this picture symbolizes the journey that so many black men endure everyday of their lives as they face countless obstacles yet continue to pursue success with unwavering determination. It is cynical to ignore the fortitude and thirst for knowledge in these men’s eyes for an opportunity to knock/shade/read Morehouse. Rain can’t stop the House, & life’s obstacles won’t stop these men…”

I’m here for all of this.

Gave me chills.
