George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.

"Another scene I remember now as an adult is every morning at school we started the day with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag…there was the American flag flying over the camp but I could also see the barbed wire fence and the sentry towers pointing at us from my schoolhouse window as I recited the words ‘With liberty and justice for all’." - George Takei, The Daily Show (July 24, 2014).

Hip Hop Song Of The Day #37: 7/26/14

Big K.R.I.T. - The Vent

the whole song is mad lyrical


If I were to sum up my experience working in Queensbridge under the tutelage of the Jacob A Riis Senior Center with TWO words it would be “eye opening”. The summer has truly exposed me to the intricacies and dynamics of the projects, how tough it is for people to survive (let alone thrive!) and the dynamics between health care and social work. Although at times I was stressed and angered about how the system has been built to keep people from succeeding, I am truly privileged to be able to have an experience and opportunity to help those who needed my help. AND it was truly destiny that I got to work in the community that my favorite rapper, NAS, grew up in. I experienced and heard his lyrics resonate through the streetz, from “I’m the type of nikka who be pissing in your elevator” to “Young bitches is grazed, each block is like a maze, Full of black rats trapped plus the Island is packed” and way others. BUT just because the class is done, doesn’t mean my work here is done! #Nas #Queensbridge #QBSince2014 #OnToTheNextOne #ABreakToTheMotherland
