Sad when caucasians think all Black folks need a savior to save them.

Leigh Ann Tuohy is the adopted mother of NFL tackle Michael Oher, the player whose story inspired the book and movie, The Blind Side. And it appears that watching Sandra Bullock play her on the big screen may have given her a bit of a messiah complex.

A few days ago Tuohy posted the photo above (and accompanying story below) on her Facebook and Instagram accounts.

We see what we want! It’s the gospel truth! These two were literally huddled over in a corner table nose to nose and the person with me said “I bet they are up to no good” well you know me… I walked over, told them to scoot over. After 10 seconds of dead silence I said so whats happening at this table? I get nothing.. I then explained it was my store and they should spill it… They showed me their phones and they were…

The Faults of the American Criminal Justice System Run Deeper Than Race

PROTEST HANDCUFF

For those continually exasperated by the spate of white denials of racism in the face of blatantly racist police killings, the #CrimingWhileWhite stories on Twitter were a gratifying rebuttal. By offering a mountain of testimony in the form of direct race-based compare-and-contrast stories, the meme undermined the country’s pernicious refusal to acknowledge that perhaps, just perhaps, it might be good to be in the upper caste. In making explicit what all secretly know to be true, an honest conversation seemed at last to be occurring.

But one thing remains puzzling about the picture being painted by #CrimingWhileWhite tweets: Who are all these people who have had such positive interactions with cops? Many poor white people might be surprised that “Criming While White” apparently gets one a free pass, and so would the large population ofregularly-brutalized homeless people in my own hometown of…

Mushroom Tortellini with Asparagus

The medical journal, “American Medical Association” publish  in 2010 based on a study that found vitamin B-6 when combined with folate ( not folac acid, the inferior form, a synthetic form) and methionine ( an amino acid, also found in meat, chicken, fish, eggs, garlic, onions, legums, and some dairy) can reduce the chances of lung cancer by as much as two-thirds. Asparagus contains both of these vitamins, and including the amino acid methionine.

More great news of the vegetable asparagus is it contains saponins which helps to fight inflammation, and can help with arthritis and rheumatism. It can also help to prevent varicose veins. Ayurvedic medicine has used asparagus for century’s to treat the symptoms of menopause as well as infertility and loss of libido (in both men and women).

The featured recipe also includes vitamins and minerals like vitamin-A, vitamin-C, calcium, and iron. It also has 18% of your…

Artists 4 Peace is an International project.  Artists from all over the world are contributing to the blog and we are truly proving that ART MATTERS.

 

We want YOU to get involved!

 

It’s time that we work, not fight, for peace.  We have to end the fighting, we have to work for peace.  We need new pictures in our heads and around us…we need new stories.  New HISTORY books…books without war, without CELEBRATIONS of war, HEROES of war, lies about war, tales written by the victors.  We are literally TEACHING children that WAR is a way of life.  We NEVER talk about PEACE as a way of life.  I’ve said it before…we have a gigantic DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE but we don’t have a Department for Peace.  We are taught to believe that war is the answer when, in fact, the answer might be PEACE.  Stop studying about war, stop watching the pictures they are putting into our heads.

 

We need to see life from a different perspective.  We are being CONDITIONED AND BRAINWASHED into believing that fighting and killing is the only way life can be lived/experienced…but we have never tried peace.  I think the time has come.  We need to WORK for peace and we need to do it now.

 

We believe your passion is your Art.  So whether your medium is paint, poetry, yarn, music or pottery YOU can be part of the movement.

 

We are looking for:

  • Paintings
  • Digital Art
  • Sculptures
  • Drawings
  • Poetry
  • Music Videos or Audio
  • Lyrics
  • Essays
  • Fiction
  • Non Fiction
  • Photography
  • Pottery
  • Knitting
  • Calligraphy
  • Dance

 

Seriously, any kind of Art!

 

Each month a different theme will be the focal point. Submissions due on the 1st of the month…publications on the 15th.

 

Please take a look at the Submission Guidelines as well as the Monthly Topics & Deadlines and Current Schedule.  We also encourage and accept any other Peace related submissions that we will post throughout the month.

 

We ask that you please put the Artists 4 Peace logo on your blog.  It will not only show others you are part of the project, it will allow you instant access to the artists4peace blog. Simply go here for Logos and instructions.

 

Join us in using our art to promote love, understanding and peace throughout the world.

Thank you!

 

Gigi and Melanie
