Come feed the little birds, show them you care, and you’ll be glad if you do. Their young ones are hungry, their nests are so bare. All it takes is a tuppence from you. Feed the birds, tuppence a bag.
The intention of this set is to show how Mulan felt when she was taken out the army, and to show why she thought these things about herself. In her eyes, she was constantly messing up, even if she managed to come back and fix them. (I.E. Having a spare cup, putting out the fire, climbing the pole to reach the arrow, holding the umbrella wrong, not being a perfect bride and even after beating the Huns.)
She still felt like she wasn’t someone worthwhile, she saw nothing in herself. Mulan had some flaws, but managed to overcome them while still being true to herself, and I made this set to show how even people who do good and help others, mess up sometimes, do things unintentionally, get blamed for things that weren’t their fault, and still come out to be a strong person. Even if for a bit, they don’t think so. You are Mulan, and you are a warrior.
Andres Amador is an artist who uses the beach as his canvas, racing against the tide to create these large scale temporary masterpieces using a rake or stick ..
Andres’ creations are simply stunning and knowing that these delicate creations are temporary somehow makes them even more beautiful.
Will: Carlton, carlton, I understand that you’re scared, man, but the world can be a scary place. Just got to learn to deal with it.
Carlton: Yeah, well, I found my way.
Will: That’s not you, man. that’s them.
^ i remember this episode i cried while watching this
Me too. 😢
This episode had me in tears, man. Like, you really knew the characters were growing from this. I loved how it was comedy and still touched on issues that affected Black youth. We need more shows like this on television.
You gotta think, the whole concept of this show was Will growing up in a bad neighborhood where shit like this happened all the time, and Carlton grew up in a life of privilege and sheltered from this kind of life, and I think Will was crying because he came so close to seeing Carlton go down the wrong path and end up like some of his friends back in Philly.
Damnit, y’all… Damn.
But ya’ll be like Will can’t act.
WHY DIDN’T THEY TEACH YOU ABOUT THIS IN HISTORY CLASS?
The Christian Movement for Life, aka, MOVE
- a pro-green, vegan, anti-technology group
- living in a house in West Philadelphia
- BOMBED by the Philly PD, from the air, on May 13, 1985
- YES, 1985!!!
- the city killed 11 people (5 children), burned down 65 homes in a Black, middle-class, West Philly neighborhood, and caused $50,000,000.00 damage - all to “evict” the group and recover two shotguns
- You know of Mumia Abu-Jamal (3rd photo from bottom) but did you know he was affiliated with MOVE?
- Ramona Africa (2nd photo from bottom) and one child survived
- MOVE leader John Africa was murdered that day
This was not the ONLY time an American city was bombed, btw. The first time, it was ALSO whites bombing Black people. And you want to talk about TERRORISM???
And what else don’t you know about your country and it’s treatment of Black people?
