This is a torch song.
Touch me and you’ll burn."
— Margaret Atwood, from “Helen of Troy Does Countertop Dancing” (via dieworten)
So, if the Founders could bend the elements a la ATLAB, which would they bend? Based on historical research, I’m thinking:
Thomas Jefferson: Waterbender
John Adams: Earthbender
Alexander Hamilton: Firebender
James Madison: Airbender
George Washington: Avatar
Benjamin Franklin: Boomerang guy
Why hasn’t someone drawn this yet? Its an epic idea.
Although, personally, I’d say Washington is more the boomerang guy (what was his talent again?) and Franklin the Avatar (that guy could do anything), but you know. XD Also, crappy Muro drawing is crappy…
Assata Shakur, Honey Magazine debut issue (1998)
My friend shared this quote with me today and I instantly remembered another great quote from Assata Shakur that I feel is crucial to be absorbed when reading the quote above “No one is going to give you the education you need to overthrow them. Nobody is going to teach you your true history, teach you your true heroes, if they know that that knowledge will help set you free”.
See this goes out to people who constantly think those of us in this generation are too sensitive or are always looking for racism when it’s just that we realize how tactics have changed…racism has never gone away they’ve just tried to change the face of the game…
