"Lydia Possible"

A few weeks (?) back I was tweeting about a Kim Possible AU with Charlie and I told her I wanted to draw Lydia as Kim and Allison as Shego. So here it is!  :]

About 1.5 million Armenians died between 1915 and 1923. “The Armenian Genocide was centrally planned and administered by the Turkish government against the entire Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire. It was carried out during W.W.I between the years 1915 and 1918. The Armenian people were subjected to deportation, expropriation, abduction, torture, massacre, and starvation. The great bulk of the Armenian population was forcibly removed from Armenia and Anatolia to Syria, where the vast majority was sent into the desert to die of thirst and hunger. Large numbers of Armenians were methodically massacred throughout the Ottoman Empire. Women and children were abducted and horribly abused. The entire wealth of the Armenian people was expropriated. After only a little more than a year of calm at the end of W.W.I, the atrocities were renewed between 1920 and 1923, and the remaining Armenians were subjected to further massacres and expulsions.”
On Oct. 2, 2008, Obama said, “my firmly held conviction that the Armenian Genocide is not an allegation, a personal opinion, or a point of view, but rather a widely documented fact supported by an overwhelming body of historical evidence. The facts are undeniable. An official policy that calls on diplomats to distort the historical facts is an untenable policy. As President I will recognize the Armenian Genocide.” But he has yet to recognize it as a genocide.#Armenian Remembrance Day #Never Forget #Recognize

How girls start questioning their boyfreinds

On what it was like shooting the purple wedding: ”All of us girls are sitting there, because it’s so hot in Dubrovnik in Croatia in the summer. So we’re all sitting with our skirts up around our necks, you know, playing scrabble. It’s very glamorous” — Natalie Dormer on Late Night with Seth Meyers (x)

University of Alabama Approves Racial Integration Of Sororities & Fraternities

alabama-sorority

University of Alabama has finally stepped into the 21st century and voted to authorize the integration of their fraternities and sororities. Over the last year, Alabama’s archaic fraternity and sorority system has come under fire. 

Last September four traditionally white sororities blocked two black women from pledging. Members of  Alpha Gamma DeltaTri DeltaChi Omega and Pi Beta Phi didn’t…

Lost Wax Playing Cards

By Olutade Abidoye

Each set of Lost Wax Playing Cards contains 54 playing cards featuring illustrations of royal figures from the 15th – 19th century Benin Empire. The Benin Empire thrived in what is now southern Nigeria and left an impressive record of their civilization in the form of bronze plaques commissioned by the King (Oba) to adorn the courtyards of his palace. The playing cards pay homage to this prosperous period in Nigerian history and, in effect, bring this bygone era from the archives into modernity in a colorful and playful way.

"I expect Lost Wax Playing Cards to bring a new dynamism to Nigerian popular culture and consciousness. My aim is to rekindle this colorful, yet elusive history into Nigerian popular culture through these playing cards. Nigerians are influenced by their indigenous traditions but more increasingly by popular culture. Symbols of tradition—such as those that inspire these cards—are easily overshadowed by meanings, images and activities drawn from popular culture. Since popular culture is grounded in the mundane and the persistent routines of everyday life, then this history too becomes implicit and fixed. The old Africa that inspired these artifacts has now lost much of its luster. If Nigeria’s prosperous past becomes common sense through these cards, then perhaps the notion of a brighter future won’t be so far-fetched." - Olutade

The name's K.P. Not really but I'd rather not put my full name since my family's on here. Yeah. I watch tv and movies and I'm into equality and all that. I suck at blogging though and mostly reblog things that I think are awesome. So...enjoy the show.
