Haven’t seen this in awhile
Umm tapping your shoulder, YES IT IS.
Apparently Carvel and Baskin Robbins were closed. So Sweden’s Minister of Culture Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth made other arrangements. To celebrate an art installation at Stockholm’s Moderna Museet along with World Art Day in April 2012, she decided to join in the festivities of cutting a cake depicting Sarah Bartman being carved into peices.
Perplexed? In the 1800’s, an African slave named Sarah Baartman was sold to multiple people, ridiculed and degraded due to her augmented features. Large breasts and a large buttocks wasn’t “normal” back then. She became a freak of nature that was immediately entertainment for the local circus freak show. When Sarah Baartman died she was brutally mutilated to which her brains, skeleton, and vagina were placed on display for 160 years. More on Sara Baartman.
Now, the fact that a clitoridectomy and beyond was performed on Sara Baartman, and these people mirrored this act by cutting slices in the vagina area of this celebratory cake art is cataclasm in it and of itself. Then add the blackface and body, the neck ring, and screams of pain with each cut, low and behold you have got clear, cut and dry, democratic math where 2+2=4 and this equals racism.
How pre-tell can one say it doesn’t exist anymore? Either you are ignorant, don’t care, or are simply blinded to your surroundings. Really observe your own world. Commercials, editorial ads, photos, speeches, the precious news, everything has a hint or a blatant racist remark or tone. Unless someone rubs a magical lamp and wishes for racism to cease forever, sadly it is here to stay. We who undergo the backlash of it all can only try not to inject violence as a means of retaliation. It really is a wonder there isn’t more crime today.

MOSCOW — A well-preserved woolly mammoth carcass with liquid blood has been found on a remote Arctic island, fueling hopes of cloning the ice age animal, Russian scientists said Thursday.
The carcass was in such good shape because its lower part was stuck in pure ice, said Semyon Grigoryev, the head of the Mammoth Museum, who led the expedition into the Lyakhovsky Islands off the Siberian coast.

From Katharine Hepburn’s 1981 interview with Barbara Walters:
Hepburn: “I have not lived as a woman. I have lived as a man…I’ve just done what I damn well wanted to and I made enough money to support myself. And I ain’t afraid of being alone.”
Walters: “Is that why also you wear pants?”
Hepburn: “No, I just wore pants because they’re comfortable.”
Walters: “Do you ever wear a skirt, by the way?”
Hepburn: “I have one.”
Walters: “You have one.”
Hepburn: “I’ll wear it to your funeral.”
We need more women like her.
