Unity in Diversity

It calls for a wider loyalty, for a larger aspiration than any that has animated the human race. It insists upon the subordination of national impulses and interests to the imperative claims of a unified world. It repudiates excessive centralization on one hand, and disclaims all attempts at uniformity on the other. Its watchword is unity in diversity.

Black Indians: A Hidden Heritage - Updated and reissued, this startling and readable work of people’s history chronicles both the attempts to keep black people and Indians divided in the Americas, and their efforts to unite. As one French colonial document stated, “Between the races we cannot dig too deep a gulf.” But the “digging” was not always successful, and much of the drama of Katz’ book is found in the inspiring instances of black-Indian unity, as in the Seminole Wars.

Society loves to portray the Black Panthers as the villains in America. They’ll only tell you that they held guns and were “militant”.

    The Tea Party hold guns and are militant. So does the NRA and their darling spokesperson, Ted Nugent. Cliven Bundy and his militia (read: MILITANTS) held Bureau of Land Management officials at gunpoint. They are all called patriots. Hmmmm...what's wrong with THIS picture?

#FireSexistDavidRubin hired by Pinterest "to extend brand to men" has done great harm to our boys and girls by promoting axe with hyper sexualization. In 2013: Rubin's Super Bowl ad implied that only men could become astronauts broadcast to millions. Time and again he teaches our young boys and girls women are brainless objects who exist to please men. Another 2013 ad went so far as to blame women for men being unable to control themselves, contributing to a sick rape culture epidemic.

    If this is where their heads at, no wonder they don't have an activism category . I'm so ANGRY and disgusted at pinterest right now !! Talk about being out of touch !!

    Pinterest's CEO credits a women with its take off. "In May 2010, a woman named Victoria helped organize a program called "Pin It Forward" – a "chain letter" where bloggers would exchange pinboards about what home meant to them. It was an inflection point." She is now the company's community manager. Lets watch if David ousts her.

    I'd be very interested to know if anyone from Pinterest is even aware of these anti-DavidRubin posts and what they think about them......

  • Human Amity

    Check out twitter, it seems a number of ad / media types are so exited about his posting, wishing him well in his new endavor. The ourtrage vs david's hiring has not yet hit twitter.

My response to Pinterest's decision to hire David Rubin, the man behind the incredibly sexist Axe bodyspray advertisements, as brand manager.

  • Human Amity

    #FireSexistDavidRubin is there already a hashtag going on twitter?

  • Storm Nyte

    Feels like a backhand to the face of every woman on pinterest !!! Disgusting

  • Analuiza Camargo

    Exactly how I feel, Storm Nyte. :-(

    Are they planning to make Pinterest Tumblr :( Tumblr has 50% of its audience, as young men Mike Mayzel hopes to match for Pinteterst with the David hire for pinterest, with its porn and near-porn collections. Tumblr offers full animated gif support is crucial as a differentiator from the static environs of Pinterest. Ten seconds of animation make a big difference in expressive power. So will David remove effective censorship and then add animated gif support as his first two moves?

  • Storm Nyte

    Judging from his prior work, he doesn't seem to possess the intelligence or imagination it would take to appeal to men without using porn gifs. The fact that pinterest considers his low brow, adolescent work some kind of marketing genius, doesn't bode well for us.
