1/ Do you know where the tradition of receiving the key to life upon your 21st 'birthday' originated? Did you even know of the tradition?

It has to do with commerce, where you are the commodity.

3/ Big #Throwback to Rome, 1230 AD where it all stems from. Perseus purposed the laws of the time to use 'the Family name, or surname in order to convert the public into the private contracts of Rome' by creating 'The-Quasi-Trust'

Selamat sore, kawans! Pada 28-29 November mendatang, di Aceh akan diselenggarakan Dengar Kesaksian Dugaan Pelanggaran HAM Masa Lalu oleh Komisi Kebenaran dan Rekonsiliasi Aceh (KKR Aceh). Mengapa ini penting?
#Throwback ke dua tahun lalu, sejumlah masyarakat sipil berhasil melakukan advokasi lahirnya KKR Aceh sebagai sebuah mekanisme non yudisial (mekanisme di luar proses hukum) untuk penuntasan pelanggaran HAM masa lalu dan kasus-kasus kekerasan yang terjadi di Aceh.
Agenda Dengar Kesaksian Dugaan Pelanggaran HAM Masa Lalu di Aceh merupakan agenda yang penting, mengingat Komisi Kebenaran dan Rekonsiliasi (KKR) Aceh adalah KKR yang terbentuk pertama kalinya di Indonesia pasca UU KKR Nasional dibatalkan MK pada 2006.

A reminder as I am reading my thesis, denying & silencing racism are acts of violence. They increase distress in the target & likely increase risks of racial trauma.
The best response when someone is in distress over racial violence is to believe them. And offer support. And if you cannot bring yourself *to* believing them this is likely about you...but anyway, at least validate...
And if you struggle with validating their experience (some of you will bc...whiteness) at least validate their distress. Then go read on anti-racism.

#throwback to when Obama’s campaign was fined $375k by the FEC for violating finance laws. There are 2 rules of law in this country. One for hypocrite, establishment Dems and one for everyone else. Clean out this corruption, tear it all down. #Vote

Jeez. I left out HRC's laundering of $84 MILLION in DNC donations to illegally finance her campaign.

NEXT UP: 8th seeded Bristol Fox (Vulpes vulpes) vs 9th seeded Racoon (Procyon lotor) #2018MMM
Our penultimate battle of the night (written mostly by
@chumblebiome) features two members of the taxonomic order Carnivora, which means they have a specialization for eating meat: #carnassials. Skull images from @NMNH #2018MMM
However, being part of Order Carnivora doesn't mean they only eat meat. Both of these Carnivorans can eat an omnivorous diet consisting of both plants and other animals. This makes them highly adaptable to many different types of environments! #UrbanJungle #2018MMM

So I was in church yesterday and the pastor was talking about the resurrection of Jesus (Easter is coming ☺)

The message was enlightening but my naughty mind was just thinking what if Jesus was born, bred and died in Modern #Nigeria

#ThisisAThread
It was a hot afternoon, Jesus and them boys (the disciples)just finish causing traffic on third mainland bridge. Everywhere was blocked from the bridge to VGC. People were just offing shirt and putting palm frond on the ground shouting "Hosanna"
Me I was just in traffic thinking "which time person won come reach house today with all this traffic, o my God"
And all this because of one Jesus.

As promised, here's a short introduction to #BlackFinnishHistory
First, keep in mind that at present there is no book or course on Black Finnish (or Afro-Finnish/African Finnish) history for me to refer to. There's info out there but it hasn't been pieced together into a clear timeline.
While still part of Sweden, Finns were as engaged in colonialism as their peers during the 1600s and were present at col.settlements in the US, trade posts in West Africa. In all likelihood, Finns were involved in slavery and thus with slaves, but there are no clear records.
