Potent minimalist art sends a strong message about police and vigilante brutality in America

Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.

Let us not forget their voices

Just a short rant about cultural appropriation

Gotten a few comments both online and offline that I should stop “”appropriating the arab culture” because i’m white and it’s really, really painful to hear that.

If anyone of these people would have taken the time to read my profile on tumblr or ask me in person, they’d realize that I’m half Tunisian and half Swedish. For those who don’t know, Tunisia is situated in North Africa and is part of the so called “Arab world”. We speak Arabic, albeit having a different dialect, as most Arab countries do.

I have lived in Arab countries (Tunisia, UAE, Kuwait) longer than I have lived in Sweden. I speak Arabic almost fluently. I got a 7 on my Arabic B class back in IB, and I’ve helped Syrian refugees in Sweden as an Arabic translator.

In Tunisia, we actually have strong ties to the “Hamsa” sign that seems so popular around the web now. We also call it “Yed Fatma” (Fatima’s Hand) and it’s supposed to bring good luck and ward off the evil eye. Women often wear jewelry on them with this symbolic hand to protect themselves.

In traditional Tunisian weddings, women get henna tattoos on their hands and feet. You might think it’s a strictly Indian thing, but Arabs have been using Henna for a long time, too (I’ve read sources that have stated up to 5000 years, but I don’t know if it’s true. Internet can be deceptive).

So, I apologize if it looks like I’m “appropriating” my own culture by posting or talking about anything remotely Arabic, or by dressing up and decorating myself with something that my family have been using on a daily basis as a way of life. If you see me wearing a jibba while shopping, please talk to me before you insult me and my culture. Thanks.

"My daughter, make a life for you, not him. And when you want death, die for your sake and not for the sake of your husband. Place him as a necessity of life and no more. In that way, if he disappears you can live without him, and if he stays you’ll realize that he will not hold you back from life."
