This is so cool! But what country are they from? “Africa” is really vague.

Their names are Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and Bello Eniola and they’re from Lagos, Nigeria. There’s a neat video about them here.

#when will people start giving names to young non-white scientists??#bc that shit is getting old

boost the fuck out of this, and make sure you include their goddamn names and country of origin.

More proof that Paul Ryan is a despicable human being.

Now that is cold.  He is being consistent if he actually donated.  Remember he wants Government out because people CAN do it.  So maybe this is the one time he was doing what he preached?

I am convinced that the soul of the white church has yet to be ashamed.

It is not ashamed of slavery- it only dismisses it.

It is not ashamed of Jim Crow - it only claims credit for ending it.

It is not ashamed of incarceration rates - it only excuses it.

It is not ashamed of ghettos - it pretends to have nothing to do with them.

It is not ashamed of segregation - only silently benefits from it.

There is no shame for who America has been. I believe that until there is collective shame for who white America has been to people of color, white America will not choose to be something else. If it is fine with who it is, it will continue to do what’s always done. Far from being offended by its own actions, instead white America- Christians included- remain offended by black bodies. This is what killed Trayvon and Renisha and Jordon and Eric and Michael. How dare black bodies resist the white will. How dare they fight back when a stranger chases. How dare they knock at 4am. How dare they not turn down the music when told. How dare they sell some cigarettes. How dare they walk in the middle of the street. How utterly offensive for black bodies to disobey whiteness.
