In Mexico City, First an Earthquake, Then a Social Uprising

The 2017 Sept. 19th earthquake is having the same effect. Out of the cracks that reveal the corruption and governmental negligence, an almost-forgotten sense of community has arisen that reminds us that even beyond the crisis, we can take care of each other, we can care, we can organize to meet real needs.And once a society has that knowledge, social change is not only possible, but inevitable.

Inoreader – ‘Get out!’: Lt General rains hell on Air Force Academy after racist messages were left on black cadets’ rooms

 

“So just in case you’re unclear on where I stand on this topic, I’m going to leave you with my most important thought today,” he said. “If you can’t treat someone with dignity and respect, then you need to get out. If you can’t treat someone from another gender, whether that’s a man or a woman, with dignity and respect, then you need to get out. If you demean someone in any way, then you need to get out. And if you can’t treat someone from another race, or a different color of skin, with dignity and respect, then you need to get out.”“If you can’t treat someone with dignity and respect, then get out,” Silveria repeated.
