Will Cotton Paintings

American painter William Cotton is an New York based painter, known for his surreal candy landscapes. His primary subjects are candy and naked women, often in combination. Will Cotton painted landscapes made out of pastries, melting ice cream, candy, and other tantalizing sweets on female models. He has a professional oven in his studio and makes all of these himself. Then uses them as models for the paintings.

Happy birthday Susan B. Anthony!
February 15, 1820 - March 13, 1906
In 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed the bill authorizing the Susan B. Anthony Dollar Coin.  The U.S. Mint officially released the coin on July 2, 1979.

Yes yes… Susan B. Anthony. 
I don’t like her. I don’t like her at all. And, here’s why. 
She fought very strongly to end slavery in America. Cool! But, as soon as Black men got the right to vote, and women still didn’t, she revealed her racist self. Anthony wrote and said tons of racist shit after Black men got the right to vote:

“The old antislavery school says that women must stand back, that they must wait until male Negroes are voters. But we say, if you will not give the whole loaf of justice to an entire people, give it to the most intelligent first. If intelligence, justice, and morality are to be placed in the government, then let the question of woman be brought up first and that of the Negro last.”  (1869 letter to Frederick Douglass)

When Blacks were being lynched, Anthony didn’t say a word. When issues concerning Blacks were brought up, she declared them “dead questions of the past.” That’s the reason why the NWSA (National Woman Suffrage Association) was started. It was a split from the American Equal Rights Association because Anthony, Elizabeth Stanton (another feminist hero who thought it was disgraceful that “Patrick [Irish immigrants] and Sambo [Blacks] and Hans [German immigrants] and Yung Tung [Chinese immigrants]” would make decisions, via the right to vote, for women like herself.), and others wanted to basically be racist.
And, Sojourner Truth was stuck in a bind. She had stood with Anthony fighting for the end of slavery. And when that was over, she was alienated by Anthony and the White women she had thought herself to be equals with. She was confused and sad. And so was Frederick Douglass. 
When Anthony was race baiting and being racist while discussing what “women” need and want.. she defined what a woman was… and her definition excluded Black and immigrant women…just like when Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich talk about “Americans” today.

“dead questions of the past”… hmmm… sounds SO familiar.

The MUSE BROTHERS- The two black albino brothers from Roanoke, Virginia is unique even in the bizarre world of sideshow. They were initially exploited and then later hailed for their unintentional role in civil rights.Born in the 1890’s the pair were scouted by sideshow agents and kidnapped in 1899 by bounty hunters working in the employ of an unknown sideshow promoter. Black albinos, being extremely rare, would have been an extremely lucrative attraction. They were falsely told that their mother was dead, and that they would never be returning home.The brothers began to tour. To accentuate their already unusual appearance, their handler had the brothers grow out their hair into long white dreadlocks. In 1922 showman Al G. Barnes began showcasing the brothers in his circus as White Ecuadorian cannibals Eko and Iko. When that gimmick failed to attract crowds the brothers were rechristened the ‘Sheep-Headed Men’ and later, in 1923, the ‘Ambassadors from Mars.They traveled with the Barnes circus for a long while. The brothers also toured with Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus in the 1920’s. In 1927, their mother tracked them down and demanded their release. However, the Muse brothers missed circus life, so they returned to show business. During their first year back they played Madison Square Garden and drew over 10,000 spectators. In the 1930’s the brothers toured Europe, Asia and Australia. They performed for royals and dignitaries, including the Queen of England. George Muse died in 1971, but Willie lived until 2001 and died at the age of 108.& I HOPE YOU ARE LEARNING SOMETHING WHILE YOU ARE SHARING THIS PHOTO!

Heaven Can Wait (1978)
In the 1970s, a movie character drinking a shake made of whipped liver, alfalfa sprouts, bean curd, and spinach just had to be from Los Angeles. So was the case with LA Rams quarterback Joe Pendleton (Warren Beatty), who consumes one of these potent potions before an overeager angel preemptively books him a one-way ticket to the pearly gates—even though the gridiron great hadn’t actually died. Thirty-five years later, protein shakes account for nearly 50 percent of the sports nutrition market, proving that the titular character of Heaven Can Wait was ahead of his time in more ways than one.

THE DEACONS: ARMED RESISTANCE IN THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT
By Oguejiofo Annu
A secret militia of armed Black men ready to defend themselves in those white-supremacy hey days of the 1950s and 1960s.Does it sound fantastic?But this is true history. The civil right movement was not won on a platter of gold. It did not come about due to the inherent goodness of the so-called white political class who engineered the oppression of black people in the first place.The civil right movement was a two armed pincer movement. There was the moral condemnation, and spiritual indictment front led by people like Rosa Park, Martin Luther King jnr, Malcom X and others. It was characterized by powerful rhetoric and civil disobedience.Then there was the faceless, nameless, cloak and dagger aspect, where armed so-called black men battled it out with armed so-called white men, including police and KKK.The violent aspect of the African American Emancipation movement has been hidden behind an officially sanitized version of a genial, peaceful, church-type civil right movement.

"Somebody in the crowd fired a pistol and the people again started to scream hysterically, ‘Kill the niggers! Kill the niggers! Pour gasoline on the niggers!’ The mob started to throw stones on top of my car. So I opened the door of the car and I put one foot on the ground and I stood up in the door holding an Italian carbine. All this time three policemen had been standing about 50 feet away from us while we kept waiting in the car for them to come and rescue us. Then when they saw that we were armed and the mob couldn’t take us, two of the policemen started running. One ran straight to me, grabbed me on the shoulder and said, ‘Surrender your weapon! Surrender your weapon!’ I struck him in the face and knocked him back away from the car and put my carbine in his face and told him that we didn’t intend to be lynched. The other policeman who had run around the side of the car started to draw his revolver out of the holster. He was hoping to shoot me in the back. They didn’t know that we had more than one gun. One of the students (who was 17 years old) put a .45 in the policeman’s face an told him that if he pulled out his pistol he would kill him. The policeman started putting his gun back into the holster and backing away from the car and he fell into the ditch. There was a very old man, an old white man, out in the crowd, and he started screaming and crying like a baby, and he kept crying and he said, ‘God damn, God damn what is this God damn country coming to that the niggers have got guns, the niggers are armed and the police can’t even arrest them?!’ He kept crying and somebody led him away through the crowd."

-

Robert F. Williams

Telling the reason why he called his book “Negros with guns.” This book had an important influence on the Black Panther Party. The quote is a selection from the book.

Several years later, Williams explains why he felt that the old white man was crying:

"It took me a long time to understand his feeling. Now I realize why he was crying. Because the gun had been the thing that had always kept them on top, and the police power. And he could see that slipping away, and his way of life was going. And this is why he was crying. And this is why I named my book "Negro’s with Guns."
